Traders On Tuesday August 3, embarked on a demonstration to mount pressure on the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) and Managers of the facility to create additional entrance into the market.
Clad in red and black attires, amid drumming and singing traders who are mainly located at the F-line part of the market on the first floor told the media that, there was no route leading to that area, preventing potential buyers from patronizing their products.
They added that the only entrance close to their stores has been blocked by the contractor working on the second phase of the Kejetia Redevelopment project directing people away from their wares.
Clad in red and black attires, amid drumming and singing, the traders said they have lost their capital after consistently recording low sales in the market.
Some of the market women noted that their customers have refused to reach out to them because of the difficulties they go through before getting to that part of the market they are located.
“Our Customers are required to treck 30 to 100 meters from the main entrance of the market in order to get goods from us, there are thousands of traders who are selling the same commodities on that stretch of route to our place. How then do you expect the customers to walk that long distance to our place”? He quizzed.
They traders have called on authorities in the Ashanti Region to as a matter of urgency come to their aid and resolve the problem for them.
