It takes two to tango

22 Sep 2018 at 10:44hrs | Views
It takes two to tango, vendors are resisting eviction because there are buyers out there. If prey vanishes then predators will disappear too.

Authorities are targeting vendors only but sparing the buying public, those caught buying from the vendors must be arrested also.

Whilst orderly vending at designated places is encouraged, indeed spreading wares at every corner in the cities may make it difficult to fight cholera.

More needs to be done than just moving the vendors from the streets. More public toilets are needed especially in Harare CBD, the few pay as you use toilets are not enough. Backyard hot meals selling points need periodic supervision from the city health authorities.

Shebeens are some of the places where total hygiene is nonexistent, operators must be encouraged to practice cleanness. Often times you see people buying apples and straight away start eating without first washing them. All such practices expose us to the cholera epidemic.
