Traders with stalls at Mama Ngina waterfront park will from Thursday, 1st July be able to access their work areas.

According to a statement from Tourism Principal Secretary Safina Kwekwe, the second phase of the park’s reopening is set for Thursday 1st July.

Unlike the first phase that only allowed health exercises, the second phase will allow controlled trade, exercise and recreational use for members of the public.

Even though the park will be reopened to the public, some activities will not be allowed including; entry of tuk tuks and motorbikes, parking of vehicles in non-designated areas, meetings and all forms of gatherings, hawking of any nature and entry into the grounds outside the set times.

Also motorsports of any nature are disallowed at all times.

“All COVID-19 health protocols should strictly be adhered to by every user. Do wear masks and ensure social distancing at all times. You are requested to comply with guidance and directions given by the Waterfront staff,” read the statement.
