Labasa Town’s special administrator, Vijay Chand, has called on Labasa market vendors to bear with them for just a short while.
Market vendors have complained about the lack of space at a temporary shed they were shifted to in the past two weeks.
Waisea Makulau, of Vitadra and Julia Bogiva, of Vunivau complained about the congested space they had been shifted to.
“The space is so small and we are overcrowded over here” Ms Bogiva complained.
“The temporary shed they have built is too small and the roof is too low so the heat from the roofing iron spoils our green vegetables that we bring from home” Mr Makulau said.
“The council should at least provide lights for this temporary shed and security to look after our goods” he suggested.
“It is an open space so we are risking our goods if we leave behind and go home in the afternoon” Ms Bogiva said.
Mr Chand said that the town council was doing its best with the renovation.
‘We just want the vendors to be patient with us” he said.
“It is a major government project and it will only take three months then the vendors will move back into their building,” Mr Chand added.
