Tbilisi Mayor Gives Trading Booth to 15-Year-Old Juice-Maker

Tbilisi Mayor Kakha Kaladze has granted 15-year-old street trader Gigi Antidze a booth in Mziuri Park, in the center of the capital.

Gigi has cerebral palsy but despite this, he has been selling fresh juices on Rustaveli Avenue in order to help his family.

The Mayor learned about the teenager after local media highlighted that Gigi will not be able to continue street trading due to newly imposed restrictions in this field.

Kaladze stated the Mayor’s Office would not be able to let the boy work in the street but promised to find an alternative place for him.

From now on, Gigi will be working in Mziuri Park, offering people fresh juices and other ready-products.

“Gigi is happy with his new booth. I wish him success in all his initiatives and activities,” the Mayor stated.
