KMA begins relocation of businesses at Kejetia terminal

The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) today began its controversial exercise to re-locate business operators at the Kejetia Terminal.
The first phase of the relocation affects drivers who ply the numerous routes linking towns in the Western region such as Bibiani, Elubo, Bogoso, Tarkwa, Prestea, Half Assini, Asankragua and Takoradi among others. They will now use Abinkyi Market as their permanent terminal.
First eviction
As early as 4.30am some security personnel, including the military, were deployed to the terminal to supervise the first eviction. Sources say the movement was peaceful with no nasty incidents recorded.
This afternoon, Kessben Media’s news team visited the Abinkyi Market where the first batches of drivers to leave have been relocated.
The CEO of the company overseeing the affairs of the Abinkyi Market, Mr.T. K. Braimah, also commented on the exercise and hoped all necessary steps had been taken to make the Abinkyi Market a peaceful trading hub.
According to him the stakeholders will hold a meeting on Friday, June 26,  to iron out all differences.
