Liberia: Child Hawkers On the Ascendency On Monrovia-Ganta Highway

[FrontPageAfrica]Monrovia -Hawking is an age long tradition among Liberians. It has become a child of necessity owing to the inability of most traders to afford the high cost of shops and the limited space in the market places, especially in the cities. To some hawkers, low sales in the shops and markets make them hawk in the streets, while to others, the need to bring their wares closer to passersby, motorists and passengers make them embrace hawking in the streets and highways in Liberia.
