Hayden Jessop, a vendor who operates at the People’s Mall site in Port- of- Spain, is claiming that demolition of booths is currently taking place at the location.

He says thirteen vendors have been affected by last week’s fire at the venue.

Speaking on the State of the Nation Programme here on Power 102.1FM on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Jessop said vendors are confused as to what is taking place and the next course of action for them at the facility.

Mr. Jessop is also a member of the Management Committee of the People’s Mall

On Tuesday Minister of Rural Development and Local Government, Kazim Hosein, said a meeting is scheduled to take place next week between vendors of the People’s Mall and its management to determine a way forward.

He was at the time responding to a question posed to him by Opposition Senator, Wade Mark who wanted to know what steps are being taken by the Government to assist small business owners who were affected.
