The Police, in conjunction with the Tema Development Council (TDC), have evicted residents of Kaiser Flats.

The over 400 residents were thrown out of their homes Friday dawn for rebuilding of the dilapidated structure.

The action comes after a Tema High Court granted the TDC up to September to ensure that the residents have vacated the apartment for repair works and rebuilding.

 

A spokesperson for the associated of affected residents told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Friday that, “This morning, we were all asleep, around five am when they came in with a court bailiff and thugs with no identification.

"They came in and started throwing people out of their rooms. Then they came to call me.

"When I came around, I saw the commander drenched in sweat and when I approached him, he said he can’t talk to me.”

He said the there were not given prior notice by the Bailiff, saying the court had given them one year to vacate the flay.

He insisted that the one period had not elapsed.

“When we went to court, we were given twelve calendar months after which they were to go for the ejection notice. Even the twelve calendar months would end in September 22 which is even not due, so why should they eject us,” he queried.

 

The Assembly man of the area, Mr Richard Anning, slammed the style of eviction adopted by the TDC.

about the nature of the ejection.

 “If it’s a court order we don’t have a problem, but they have to engage us and tell us when they want to evict us. They can’t come here unceremoniously and enter our rooms with unknown faces and attack us,” he said told the GNA.

 

“Money and valuable documents have been stolen; whom are we going to talk to. Is it because we didn’t attack anybody, because of that they take us for weaklings? We are not weak. We are law abiding people that is why we just allowed them to do what they did.”
