Following the circulation of a video in which a street vendor was seen being evicted by officers from the Windhoek City Police the City of Windhoek issued a statement explaining that this is not the first time the same vendor has contravened the informal trading bylaw, and the City Police have issued numerous warnings to her for trading outside her designated spot but she has continued to violate orders and directives given to her.“It is important to make it very clear that street vendors are allowed to sell their products. However, they should only do so at specific areas as designated by their permits,” City of Windhoek Manager for Corporate Communications, Marketing and Public Participation Harold Akwenye said, further explaining that the City Police had opened a case of assault against the vendor for allegedly attacking and assaulting a female officer during the eviction.
