Labella orders probe into sale of vending spaces


Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella is investigating the alleged sale of vending spaces at the night market on Colon Street.

Some vendors sold their spots at P10,000 to other vendors, according to reports he received.

Labella said those involved in the scheme would no longer be allowed to sell their goods at the night market and in any sidewalk of the city. (

He also said he would fire City Hall employees found to be in cahoots with the erring vendors.

“They should not be allowed to vend,” the city mayor said.
