KAMPALA - Vendors in Kasubi market in Kampala are confused after the market governing body expelled the big umbrellas that have been providing shade to them and their merchandise.

 


Carol Namuddu who sells vegetables says they no longer display their merchandise.

"Currently it's difficult to display what we sell due to fear of the direct sunshine and heavy rains that leave our goods rotten or dry," Namuddu stated.

 


Zibu Ronald, the chairman of the market says they decided to take that step in a bid to fight the spread of coronavirus in the market.

"We discovered that big umbrellas accommodate three to five people, which is contrary to the President and Ministry of Health's directive of keeping social distance. So, we agreed that every vendor must have a small umbrella that accommodates only one person," Zibu said.

 


Market users were recently advised by the President to maintain a social distance of at least four metres from one another.
