All informal traders in Mbombela are urged to register their details in a new database of the Mbombela Local Municipality, as part of the Informal Trade Management Programme.
According to the municipality, this database will form the foundation of a permitting system that will secure the livelihoods of legitimate informal traders and assist them in properly planing for the development of these traders.
The database will capture each trader’s personal details, where they trade, what goods they sell and other general information.
Traders are required to bring their valid and original South African ID, passport or work permit. Other documents that should be brought along, if traders have them, are proof of registration as an informal trader in Mbombela and certified copies of any academic qualifications like matric certificates, training certificates, diplomas or degrees.
Traders in the White River area can visit the Mbombela Civic Hall (Civic Centre) from November 9 to 11, from 08:00 to 16:00.
Other venues where registration will take place are the Kanyamazane Council Chamber on November 5 (today) from 08:00 to 16:00 and the Matsulu Council Chamber on November 6 (tomorrow) between 08:00 and 16:00.
