Traders of Mitchell’s Plain, Town centre have been evicted by Law Enforcement officials early this morning.

One of the traders who introduced herself only as Jennifer says at about 5am the city officials forced them to leave the area with no eviction letter.

“When I arrive at my stand, they started by vandalising it and confiscated my goods,” she said.

Spokesperson for traders Mischka Cassiem says their livelihood is at stake.

“We have to wait and see, and at this stage I can not comment further until we met with the city,” Cassiem said.

About 700 traders have been affected by the eviction.
