Our businesses will collapse if we are evicted – Bantama traders
Traders at the Bantama market area, in Kumasi in the Ashanti region, are lamenting the imminent collapse of their businesses as authorities from the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) have begun to relocate them forcefully to racecourse.
The traders have complained of limited space at their new location as well as lack of shops or sheds for their commodities, leaving their wares to the mercy of the weather and thieves.
Petty traders who do not operate by the roadside have also complained that they have been affected even though earlier notices sent to the traders did not mention them as part of the group to be moved to racecourse.
They have appealed to government to come to their aid and order the KMA to rescind its decision.
