Gweru City Council will on August 2, 2022 conduct a joint operation with other security agents to remove vendors who are trading along the road intersection at Mtapa in a move meant to restore order and sanity in the Central Business District (CBD).

The development was confirmed by Gweru City Acting Town Clerk Douglas Vakai Chikwekwe in a notice which was issued on July 30.

“Gweru City Council will be conducting a joint operation to remove informal traders on the roadsides and intersections at Mtapa.

“The road intersections are not authorized for trading hence it is hazardous for pedestrians and motorist,” read part of the notice.

Vendors have been ordered to remove their wares by August 2, 2022 to avoid any inconveniences.

Those without proper market stalls have also been called upon to visit council for registration of stalls.
