The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has at last began the allocation of shops in the new Kejetia market to traders.
The traders are excited at the exercise which commenced Thursday 11th July, 2019.
The allocation is being done for traders who have gone through all the required processes of verification, validation and exhibition.
Leaders of the traders Associations who spoke on Kumasi-based Fox FM have also praised the Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly; Osei Assibey Antwi for the progress made.
They are also asking traders to be patient as the allocation is being done, giving assurances that everyone who legitimately owns a shop will have it.
The leaders also explained that the current exercise is focusing on traders who have lockable shops. “We will find time for those who trade on table tops later”.
The Chief Executive of KMA has already presented a copy of the allocation documents to the Regional Minister as well as the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace.
A lot of agitations have gone on between the KMA and the traders expected to occupy the shops since the completion of the project. If all goes well all traders will soon be settled.
There are however issues related to their tenancy agreements that remain to see a consensus.
