Some traders at the Kejetia market in Kumasi have embarked on a street protest against a planned demolition and forced eviction of their shops at the central business district.

They have been given a two-month grace period by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to vacate the market or risk getting their merchandise and properties destroyed.

The KMA has earmarked a plan to demolish the age-old Kumasi Central Market and reconstruct it with modern facilities. Earlier,  Angry Traders Storm KMA Office, Vows To Go On Naked Demo

The angry traders from Kejetia claim that they have gathered that as part of the plans for the reconstruction of the central market, the KMA has also decided to demolish shops at the Kejetia Lorry Terminal.

The lorry terminal was originally built solely for vehicles to load and offload goods and serve as a central transport station for commuters in Kumasi. But it has seen a number of shops constructed over there in the last 15 years.
