Idul Adha cattle vendors should not hamper pedestrian, traffic: Anies
The Jakarta Post
Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan will instruct his mayors to arrange stalls of cattle sold for the Idul Adha sacrifice so that they will not hamper traffic or pedestrians.
“I will instruct mayors to tidy up [and] make sure that they [cattle sellers] only use spaces that will not disturb traffic or pedestrians,” he said at City Hall, Central Jakarta, on Wednesday, as quoted by kompas.com.
Anies said cattle sellers should be able to do their business, but traffic and pedestrians should be respected too.
When asked whether it meant cattle sellers would be prohibited from setting up stalls on sidewalks as they did in previous years, Anies said, “The locations will be arranged by the mayors.”
Idul Adha, the day of sacrifice, is expected to fall on Aug. 22. (gis)
