Sewer bursts and water shortages are making life difficult for informal traders operating in Pumula North and Emakhandeni suburbs in Bulawayo.

This came out in an engagement meeting held by the Vendors Initiative for Social and Economic Transformation (VISET) on Friday.

Speaking during the meeting, one vendor, Talent Mpofu said the sewer bursts chase their customers away.

Also informal traders operating in ward 11, Emakhandeni highlighted the shortage of boreholes in their area as the major challenge affecting their vending businesses.
