The KMA has earmarked a plan to demolish the age-old Kumasi bus terminal and reconstruct it.

The drivers claim the KMA's decision to move them to the rails-course is insensitive since the place has not be prepared to accommodate them.

They are also expected to present a petition to the Chief Executive, Mensah Bonsu and the the Ashanti regional minister Peter Anarfi Mensah.
