NGO Calls for Masondo’s Return

The One Voice Hawkers' organisation has demanded the return of former Johannesburg mayor, Amos Masondo.

One Voice spokesperson, Zakes Ramotolana, states that the current mayor, Parks Tau’s mother used to sell tomatoes for a living, however, the mayor has now turned his back against street hawkers.

“Under former mayor Masondo, the hawkers were treated like proper business people … we demand that Masondo comes back and Tau must resign," argues Ramotolana.

NGO Not Happy With Traders Re-Registration

The South African National Traders' Retail Alliance claims that the City of Johannesburg has no plan of what to do after it evicted thousands of informal traders more than a month ago.

The alliance spokesperson, Edmund Elias, argues that, "The city failed to produce a plan for the return of over 6000 victims of forced removals 32 days ago to their trading spaces."

Elias says that the alliance wants all the traders to be allowed back to their trading stations.
