Amid a struggling economy, millions of citizens found themselves on the streets battling to survive. There are now over 6 million vendors in Zimbabwe, the National Vendors Union Of ZImbabwe leader, Sten Zvorwadza told ZimEye.com in a recent interview.
This time speaking to the DailyNews, Zvorwadza said the vendors will not listen to what he termed, “such nonsense.”
“As the informal sector, we will not listen to such nonsense; we are going to stay in the streets. He is daydreaming. I bet with my head, the president has no capacity to remove vendors from the streets,” he said.
“he (Mugabe) must depart from this issue of day-dreaming. Mugabe must appreciate the role of the informal sector. Zimbabweans must understand that Mugabe is old and he is a dead man walking.
“The move to chase away vendors will be a final blow to the dying economy. Mugabe is living a good life with his family; he thinks that we are in the streets because we want to do so, failing to understand that he is the one who created this situation.”
