1 200 hawkers ‘apply for slice’ of Cup

2010-05-13 10:22

Nelson Mandela Bay has received over 1 200 applications for hawkers

to trade at World Cup events, the municipality said today.

The municipality said that it was soliciting more applications so

traders could “apply for a slice of the 2010 Fifa World Cup cake”.

Municipalities and Fifa had recently come under attack from hawkers

and traders who said they had been excluded from conducting business around

World Cup events.

Nelson Mandela Bay was encouraging traders to ply their trade at

the fan parks rather than stadiums as the former could draw more visitors.
