Concerned Hawkers and Traders Association are expected to hold another meeting today to address the issue of eviction that has be looming for some months now.

Spokesperson for CHATA Mieshka Classier says situation for the Mitchell's Plain traders is still very uncertain. We still do not know when evictions could take place.

“We are worried that the City is merely using the workshop to pretend that they are consulting with us. We have found this to be the case elsewhere with other traders.

“The City uses negotiations to divide us and then comes right in to evict us. This is happening all over the Western Cape. There have been threats that a Law Enforcement operation will commence to evict us anytime next month,” said Mieshka Cassiem.

Our fate as hawkers is tied in with the fate of Epping Market. If we suffer, the economy of the Western Cape suffers as well added Cassiem.
