Food vendors barred from Amerindian residence
Vendors who sell to lodgers at the Amerindian Residence on Princes Street yesterday turned up and were greeted with a locked gate.
The vendors, who numbered about 10, told Stabroek News that when they turned up to sell yesterday they were told that they would not be allowed to vend there any longer. “We deh here since 6 o’clock this morning and this man at the gate tell we that we can’t go inside and sell. They lock the gate and lock up all of we tables inside. Now all of we food gon spoil because we can’t get to set up outside. Imagine them people inside the hostel hungry and want to come out to buy stuff but they lock them up in there like prisoners,” one of them said.
