Striking Mwanza traders who threatened to close shop indefinitely have resumed work two days after the strike started.
The Chairman of the Traders Union Christopher Wambura (photo) said over the weekend that they had decided to call off the strike after the city council authority agreed to work on their demands.
“However, we have given them three weeks to work on our demands short of that we will resume the strike and this time we would not listen to anybody,” he threatened.
Wambura said in their meeting with the city council it was resolved that waste levy that was 15,000/- would be reduced to 8,000/- and trucks would now be allowed to offload at night which was previously prohibited.
“Fee for toilet facilities is to be reduced to 200/- from 300/- per,” Wambura said.
