"It is clear that TUICO can assist the market and street vendors to negotiate for better working conditions and defend themselves against eventual situations of police harassment or other forms of abuse," added Majura Jones. "There are too many situations when traders are subjected to arbitrary treatment and their contribution to the national economy is not recognised nor valued. For instance, at Ilala market, the coconut and vegetable sellers can only trade between 6am -10 am. Once the police blow the whistle, they are meant to pack up and leave. We think the New Manifesto campaign can highlight these situations and set a new agenda for improving the working environment of street and market vendors,"' he concluded.
