Hawkers Flood Port Elizabeth With Applications to Vend at World Cup

More than 1,200 businesses have applied for licenses to trade wares at World Cup events in Nelson Mandela Bay (Port Elizabeth).

The municipality said in a statement it was soliciting more applications so traders could “apply for a slice of the 2010 Fifa World Cup cake”.

Municipalities and Fifa had recently come under attack from hawkers and traders who said they had been excluded from conducting business around World Cup events.
