Committee Setup To Investigate Kejetia Market Flooding
The management of the Kejetia Market in the Ashanti Region has set up a seven-member committee to investigate and make suitable proposals following the flooding of the market.
The Monday, May 2, water flooded the market and damaged items worth thousands of Ghana cedis as a result of faulty valves link to water tanks.
The leadership of the Federation of Kumasi Traders afterward met with the management of the market over the cost of items damaged.
The Secretary of the federation, Reuben Ammeh disclosed in an interview with the Accra base radio station that the committee has two weeks to present its proposal.
He also entreats the traders to be calm, support, and be satisfied with the decisions by management.
Mr. Ammeh added that “The decision has already been taken that come what may, whichever way we go, definitely there has to be compensation given to the traders.”
The committee is represented by three traders, three members of management, and one person from the Ghana National Fire Service.
Also, the traders are calling on the management of the facility to properly engage them to resolve all outstanding issues as some 200 shops were closed last week following a misunderstanding over the payment of premiums.
