Gambier road hawkers moved by 15 June

"Fish dealers and hawkers of Gambier Street market have appealed for another six month’s extension before relocation to the new market in Stutong as one month’s notice is considered too short.

Federation of Kuching Samarahan Hawkers president Kapitan Lim Sin Khee, who is also the chairman for Kuching Fish Dealers Association, said they received notice on May 15 asking them to move to the new market by June 15 ‘but there are many things which are not fully prepared as yet’."

We understand the need to relocate the old market place as it is part of Kuching Waterfront expansion but I think government should listened to the hawkers and give them more time. One month really is a short notice!!!

The Stutong New Wet Market is located opposite Kuching Specialist.
