ew privately-owned open market to start operating at Choto informal settlement

CHOTO: A new privately-owned open market will start operating at the Choto informal settlement on the outskirts of Katima Mulilo in the Zambezi Region tomorrow.

It will accommodate the high number of street vendors currently conducting their business around Katima Mulilo, mainly in front of shops.

The Choto informal settlement is one of the most densely-populated informal settlements at the town.

The open market, which was constructed on a 2 500-square metre piece of land, will complement the existing Katima Mulilo Open Market owned by the town council.

Once the new open market opens for business, it will accommodate a total of 280 vendors, who will be running various businesses.
