Buffalo City informal traders: From scraping by to cashing in

BISHO: Informal traders in the Buffalo City metro in the Eastern Cape said they were looking forward to the festive season as it was generally a period where they could earn some profits.

Executive mayor Xola Pakati kickstarted the season with a two-decade-long tradition of switching on the Christmas street lights at Qonce on Friday night.

Hundreds of people were expected in East London on Saturday night for a similar event.

The most popular location for informal traders, Ebuhlanti, was already a hive of activity.

Festive season has started in BCM, one way we know…Ebuhlanti is packed.

The hawkers are looking forward to the festive season as this is the busiest time of the year for them – meaning after months of scraping by they'll be cashing in. pic.twitter.com/6OkfBgwaOY
