Market vendors at Nabua will have until Friday to vacate the area they are operating from in front of supermarkets.

Previously, they were told to leave on Sunday.

But an order by the chairman of the special administrators’ team for Suva and Lami, Isikeli Tikoduadua has extended the deadline.

He clarified that there was no space on the Suva City Council land in Nabua to immediately relocate the concerned vendors to.

However, he said there was space at the Suva Municipal Market where they could continue with their daily business.

He said the council had to fumigate the place at Nabua and divide the spaces for vendors. After that, they would build a proper shelter to protect them from the rain and sun.

The new spaces, he said, would be bigger and Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) compliant.

Nabua market vendor’s spokesman Usaia Korodrau said they would be meeting with the Council’s Director Administration and Operations, Asaeli Tokalau, on Monday.

“We are going to raise all our concerns to him and hopefully the council will be in a position to help us,” he said.

“We have agreed to leave the place we are selling our goods and produce from by this Friday.”

The council, he said, had promised vendors that they would return to the same place after the council had completed its work.

He thanked the council for the support it had been giving before it served the notice for vendors to move.
