Traders at the Kumasi Central Market will now have to work in turns as part of efforts to enforce social distancing among traders.
The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) announced this social distancing formula after closing down the market on Tuesday, 7th April, 2020.
The KMA in a release copied to GhanaNewsPage.Com said that traders are failing to observe the mandatory social distancing issued by the government hence their forceful closure.
“After a lengthy deliberation on the effects of the actions by some recalcitrant traders, it was unanimously agreed that the Central Market be closed down in the interim to enable traders reorganize themselves into groups to trade in turns to reduce congestion…” parts of a statement signed by the Metropolitan Chief Executive, Osei Assibey Antwi read.
