Kejetia Dubai traders hit the streets over high electricity tariffs (Video)

Traders at the new Kejetia market on Tuesday morning marched to express dissatisfaction over what they describe as unreasonable electricity tariffs that they are being charged.

The Kejetia Market which has approximately 7200 shops has only one metre that operates under a centralized electricity metre.

Checks by the Kessben News room reveal the market owes the Electricity Company a whopping amount of GHC5.2million.

After sharing the bill with various stores in the market, the least amount which is being charged for a store that only uses a bulb is reportedly going for GHC1000.

The aggrieved traders thus after hitting the street headed to the management of the market to present their petition over the high electricity charges.

The management of the market has however warned the traders that if fail to fulfil half payment of the bills by the close of Friday, power will be disconnected from the market.

Disconnection of power will slack business activities in the indoor market.
