Some Traders at Kumasi Kejetia Market identified as Aggrieved Kejetia Market Traders have petitioned Management to explain in detail concerning their bill charges.
According to them, following the distribution of bills to the traders of Kumasi City Market by the Management on Friday, July 8, 2022, a lot of concerns and agitation were sparked by a section of the Traders.
In addition, they have underscored issues like inconsistencies, inaccuracies, and bias on the bill which covers electricity, and other service charges.
The petition reads; upon this background and on behalf of the aggrieved traders, we petition your high office to furnish us with all the information as follows:
The total amount payable to ECG, total amount payable to other service providers (security, Garbage, fumigation, and cleaning), contract details of service providers in terms of financial obligation, criteria for allocation of payment on the bills, and Data from allocation of bills that is store/shed/table, etc., population (shed occupants includes Transport groups, butchers, tailors, etc.).
Furthermore, they stated, that the need for this action has been necessitated by their position as an interested party and what the majority of the traders describe as leadership failure and mistrust.
They are with this petition calling on the Management of Kejetia Market to respond to them in oral and documented report.
