Kejetia Traders and Concerned Central Market Traders Associations have gone tough on the Ashanti Regional Minister Simon Osei-Mensah for directing the KMA to halt distribution of keys to shop owners of the new Kejetia Market.

Members of the Kejetia Traders Association are calling for the head of Ashanti Regional Minister Hon Simon Osei Mensah after he ordered the Kumasi Metropolitan Assemby (KMA) to stop distribution of keys to shop owners of the newly constructed Kejetia market.

In an interview with Nana Ampratwum on 'Omanbapa Morning Show',members of the Traders Association claimed they heard the Regional Minister on media directing the suspension of the allocation and key sharing exercise and return to the KMA for reasons not clear to them.

According to the traders, the reason for the Minister's order is to have their allocation forms returned and amended by adding their old shop numbers on the forms.

The agitating traders however disagree with the development since they argue that new addition ''had already being catered for when the process begun ...He is doing all these for his own personal gains''

They claim the Minister's directive is just to delay the process by halting the sharing of keys to central market traders with the intent to resume the allocation after Christmas.

The members also made a shocking revelation that the NPP wants to delay the process since they fear evacuation of traders for commencement of the second phase of Kejetia Market would affect them in the region in the upcoming 2020 elections.

In a related development, the Chairman of the Kejetia Traders' Association, Mr. Kwabena Obeng at a press conference held on Thursday 7th November 2019,made a passionate appeal to President Akufo-Addo to terminate the appointment of Hon Simon Osei Mensah because of his poor performance in the region.

He wondered why the regional minister is not focusing on his duty to rehabilitate deplorable roads in Kumasi but has spared such time to interfere with their businesses, which is the only source of living for them.

Kejetia Project Consultant, Emmanuel Danso speaking on the issue with the host on Thursday 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.
