Kejetia Traders and Concerned Central Market Traders Associations have agitated over the sudden suspension of the allocation exercise of shops in the New Kumasi Kejetia Market, accusing the Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei-Mensah for influencing the process.

Their claims are that some colleagues at the central market have received their keys to the allocated shops but the larger part of the members are still without allocation.

The traders also claim that despite the release of allocation documents to some of its members , the old market which is seen as a 'community market' is no more due to the disorder in arrangement of traders at the new Kejetia Market,which they believe may cost them their already built business/client relation.

Speaking in an interview on OmanbapaSHOW with host Nana Ampratwum, Chairman of the Kejetia Traders' Association, Mr. Kwabena Obeng alleged that the Regional Minister made a statement on the media after engaging the 11-member steering committee on the suspension of the sharing of keys to central market traders which the committee objected to his suggestions.

''The Minister proposes we have to amend the forms we had already submitted for allocation by adding our old shop numbers which we know it has already being catered for...He is doing all these for his own personal gains''

''We were utterly shocked at the sudden U-turn in the allocation of shops which from our checks reveal that the Ashanti Regional Minister gave that order for a halt in the on-going allocation exercise...it is delaying the process and we do not agree''

The Chairman alleged that Minister had already made a comment to the Concerned Traders at the Regional Office that he [ Minister ] can take any decision he deems fit.

Relatively in another interview with MK, the Operations Director of the Central Market Traders Association  the same accusation was made, blaming Hon. Simon Osei Mensah (Ashanti Regional Minister) for the suspension in the allocation of keys to the traders of central market on grounds of adding old shop numbers to already submitted forms.

He alleged the Minister intentionally wants to delay the process by halting the sharing of keys to central market traders with the intent to resume the allocation after Christmas.

“When you frustrate traders in this Manner, are you expecting us to impose power in your hands while many are dying because of your selfish interest” he told SilverFMs Akwadaa Nyame.

He finally added there is no place of convenience at the market which makes it difficult for them at the central market and revealed many challenges they face currently.

Kejetia Project Consultant, Emmanuel Danso speaking on the issue with the host indicated that the process of allocation is outside their mandate so the remaining work is to do with Kejetia Market Management.

He insisted that the slow process in relocating traders at the Kumasi Central Market has delayed the commencement of Phase 2 of the market’s redevelopment project for more than five months.

''We are patiently waiting for the authorities to finish with the evacuation and allocation process''

''We plead for smooth and fast process since we are being affected with paying of our expatriate contractors''
