Mayor of the City of Blantyre, I would realise that while vendors are not supposed to sell their wares in the streets, the council has not provided solution to the problem because there are no designated places in our cities that can accommodate all vendors.
If I were the mayor of Blantyre, I really would feel ashamed that my men are busy roughing up female vendors, considering that the markets are too small to accommodate all vendors.
If only I were my man Noxy, I really would realise that while vendors are increasing in numbers, our market infrastructure is small and that is why when they are pushed out of the streets, they seem to have nowhere to go to sell their wares.
I would also find a way to tell my men that these vendors, women with children at their backs included, are not criminals, but Malawians trying to earn a decent living in a country where the unemployment rate is high.
Yes, if we do not need vendors to ply their trade in the streets, we need to begin investing in market infrastructures.
I would also realise, if I were His Lordship Mayor Chalamanda,that being a youthful city father, residents expect much more from my leadership other than stories of my men roughing up women vendors in the streets.
Unfortunately, I am not Noxy!
