The rise and rise of hawking in the city

SINCE she was retrenched by the airport company, where she worked as a cleaner, seven years ago, 40-year old Mmaphefo Moeng has been preparing and selling food from a gazebo inside the recently renovated taxi rank at the corner of Pim and Queen Streets in Newtown. She has an established client base - mainly taxi drivers - and makes enough money to take care of herself and her two children. She has never fallen foul of the law and knows where she can and cannot sell. "Only traders who obstruct pavements get arrested. It's fine here. I have access to water and electricity and I don't have to pay rent."
