“Where do they expect us to go now that they have demolished our structures.They gave us a three week ultimatum but they did not give us an alternative venue for us to relocate to. We do not have any place to sell our wares and we have to work to cater for our family. Government should have found a convenient place for us before demolishing our structures,” the disgruntled trader complained.
