MINISTER of Urban and Rural Development, Erastus Uutoni last Friday officially opened the N$ 2million Fruit and Vegetables Trading Market in Tsumeb.

The official opening of the market clears the way for the towns’ vendors to have a place to work from after years of working on the street.

The Fruit and Vegetable hub is the product of a collaboration between Tsumeb Municipality and Dundee Precious Metals that began in 2019 in order to provide a safe and secure facility that allows merchants to operate in an inexpensive area.

The market will also aid in the control of the town’s growing number of unregistered business activities.

According to Uutoni, it is the role of central and local governments to develop and implement policies and programs that promote the welfare and improve the lives of residents, particularly those at the grassroots level.

The Minister advised the vendors to preserve the facility because future generations will need it, and also thanked the stakeholders who helped bring the facility to fruition for the benefit of the town and local business vendors.

The market can accomodate 100 merchants and has 23 cubicles and stalls for SMEs such as hairdressers, barbershops, and many others.
