Unemployed people's number is increasing in the country due to economic turn down hence there has been an increase of vendors.

Streetwise Informal Traders Association (SITA) coordinator, Percy Mcijo recently said government must unveil policies for informal sector.

He said they were creating jobs hence they need to be supported. Bulawayo Vendors Traders Association (BVTA), Michael Ndiweni asked government to support vendors as an economic hub.
