Street vendors occupy the pavements and street corners in the busiest parts of the country’s major cities and towns.
Here they sell everything from clothing to electronic items to food and groceries.
But the vendors now claim that they want to reinstitute this dress code and “bring back sanity among women.” Recently, the street vendors have become a powerful force politically; in August last year the country’s President Bingu wa Mutharika provided them with an undisclosed sum of money to use as a revolving loan fund.
Mutharika also wined and dined up to 2,000 vendors at his flamboyant palace soon after the Jul.
“The men found causing trouble for women have been charged with violence and malicious damage” said Chingwalu.
“We will not just watch women being harassed; there’s freedom of dressing in this country and no one has a right to dictate how women dress.” Meanwhile, women activists and human rights defenders held a protest meeting in Blantyre on Jan.
During that time, however, women were banned from wearing shorts, mini-skirts and trousers.Up to 40 percent of Malawi’s national budget has been dependent on donors and 80 percent of the country’s development budget was being provided under the Common Approach to Budget Support, which includes Britain, Germany, the African Development Bank, Norway, the European Union and the World Bank.The British and German governments are already refusing to release up to 400 million dollars.But when the vendors in Lilongwe began rioting last week in protest against their forced removal by the local city council, things took a turn for the worse as vendors began stripping women and physically assaulting them.Dubbed “,” which is vernacular Chichewa and translates into “today I buy from you, tomorrow you undress me”, the campaign was initiated on Jan. Women activists want to use the campaign to teach the vendors a lesson on respecting women, according to Seodi White, executive director of the influential women rights organisation, Women in Law in Southern Africa-Malawi.
