Govt Amends S.I NO.54 Of 1992 That Strengthen Laws Against Street Vending

The Ministry of Local Government and Housing has amended Statutory Instrument number 54 of 1992 that strengthens laws against street vending and public nuisances.

      The message is simple and straight forward: Do not conduct business mu bala (wheelbarrow), or on the ground, etc. It is like you are saying when the poor murders a person, he should be given a 20 years in jail, but when the rich kills, he sentenced to death upon proven guilty.
