The movement of about 1,000 sellers began on Thursday following quite a number of conflicts between city specialists and market merchants. The conflict began after reports that about 300 sellers were not in the market vendor's list.

A few sellers whined that the portions depended on relations with the technical individuals and the larger part would not take up lockups designated to them by the city specialists.

Joweria Sebugerere, one of the merchants communicated fervor when she got her stall.
