Hoima Market Vendors Protest Against Street Vendors

By Leilah Bbaale

Traders from Hoima Central Market are demonstrating against the presence of street vendors outside the market.
The traders say that they no longer receive clients as customers prefer to purchase items outside the market. They also accuse Hoima city authorities of failing to block operations of street vendors despite their numerous complaints.
On Wednesday morning, several traders paraded their goods outside the market that is located along the Hoima- Fort Portal road.
The traders say that their colleagues sell goods cheaply along the streets, luring customers to purchase from them and shun the market. The traders want the Hoima City authorities to ensure that all vendors are allocated space within the market.
Spice FM could not get a comment from Hoima city council authorities over the matter by the time we filed this story.
