More than one hundred shop traders at Mbudzi people's market opened shop late on Wednesday after the owner of the complex who was only referred to as Mr Felix demanded part of the rentals in foreign currency giving them a seven day ultimatum to either pay the rent or leave the premises.
Mr Felix later allowed the traders to open after agreeing to sign new lease forms. Efforts to speak to Mr Felix were fruitless as he refused to talk to the media.
Meanwhile Industry and Commerce Deputy Minister Raj Modi says foreign currency shortages are affecting Ingwebu breweries plans to increase its capacity utilisation.
Deputy Minister Modi was speaking during a tour of the company on Tuesday.
