Vic Falls to flush out troublesome street beggers

THE Victoria Falls Municipality is planning to flush out all street beggars as they have become a menace  to  international tourism destination, Town Clerk, Christopher Dube has said

Dube  said if the beggars are not  dealt with they  were likely to send a wrong impression about the country and Victoria Falls to visitors.

"Just like other local authorities we have some challenges with vendors but ours is not as complex as other towns probably for two reasons.

“We're a small local authority and we're also very strict on our by-laws because we're an international destination," said Dube.

 Victoria Falls is the country's prime resort centre and earns millions of dollars each year by attracting thousands of international tourists.

"Lately, we've noticed that there has been a proliferation of beggars on the streets and we're looking at ways of evicting them soon. There are street beggars almost everywhere and we need to find ways of dealing with them."
