Some members of the task force of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) had to resort to force and physical struggle to sack some of the petty traders of the streets as part of a decongestion exercise.

Photos making the rounds show members of the taskforce struggling with one of the traders who came back to the streets of the Central Business District of Kumasi to sell after they had been asked not to display their goods there.

When the task force tried to arrest him, he did not allow them causing some of the members of the task force to fight him.


However, most traders have taken their wares to an uncompleted building near the Kumasi central market after they heard of the decongestion exercise. They are avoiding arrest and seizure of their wares.
