ON Monday, informal traders picketed outside Save View in Pietermaritz Street in protest of municipal by-laws that prohibits them from trading there.

Msunduzi Municipality spokeswoman Ntobeko Ngcobo said after being alerted about the protest by Save View management, the municipality dispatched officials to the site to remedy the situation.

Ngcobo said the informal traders were contravening municipal by-laws by plying their trade in Save View’s loading zone. “We have to apply the by-laws and the municipality has just started a clean-up campaign targeting informal traders who are trading illegally,” she said. — WR.
