CHITUNGWIZA residents have been calling for order at Jambanja Market where robbery and theft cases are recorded daily.

Their call follows a number of vendors failing to comply with authorities in observing measures set by government to curb the spread of Covid-19.

“Our market is exposed to both thieves, robbers and diseases as well because there is no measures set for people to pass through entrances for sanitization and checking of temperatures,” said one of the vendors.

“We are appealing to relevant authorities to at least put a fence if a precast wall might take long and as well as a shelter so that we will not be exposed to wet and hot weather.

“We have illegal vendors causing discord and failing to observe measures set to curb the spread of Covid-19.


“They are the ones promoting lawlessness at the market as vendors end up disregarding measures in an effort to compete for clients,” said the vendor.


A number of vendors were not putting on facemasks and were disregarding social distancing.
