Fire in Mzuzu: Vendors torch stadium, attack Mayor

163

Infuriated by the exercise by police to demolish their structures at Vigwagwa market, irate vendors caused havoc in Mzuzu city last night.

Reports say the vendors owning the structures at the market have overtime been told they are operating in an illegal space but have failed to give in to calls to relocate.

A building destroyed by the fire

Due to the failure by the vendors to move out, police last night went on to demolish the structures but only sparkled an unprecedented reaction from the vendors.

In retaliation, the vendors rushed to Mzuzu stadium and city council where they reportedly set fire to some equipment being used by the National Registration Bureau (NRB) for the national registration exercise.

As if this was not enough, the vendors went to city house of the city’s Mayor in Mchengautuba where in the course of torching his house, community members came to the mayor’s rescue.

  14. People of the north are incomparable. The president went to north recently and promised vendors something he didn’t fulfill. The police out of nowhere came and destroyed business base and everyone here doesn’t see anything wrong with that. Vigwagwa market has been there for years. And the government through local government collects market fees from vendors. Now what. It’s so painful guys in such hard times you try to build up a business and someone comes and just destroy everything with no apparent reason. Bicycle taxis are all taken away from these poor vendors. Tobacco industry is gone. What are they supposed to do. Their only hope is destroyed. Fuck the the stadium, fuck the mayor and fuck the police and fuck the president. What the police did was unprofessional . Vigwagwa is not in the business restricted area. Mzuzu market is far too small to accommodate every other vendor.

    • Chizete chamunthu iwe ndiye papezeka phindu lanji poyasa mtsika? Ati avutike ndi ndani pakati pa President ndi anthu omwe akukhala kumenekowo? Chibaluwa chonsechi ine ndimayesa ngati ukambamo zanzeru mxiii
