Traders Confident Reconstruction Of Kumasi Central Market To End Perennial Fire Outbreaks

Traders at the Kumasi Central Market are confident the incessant fire outbreak could end as reconstruction of the facility begins in April.

Fire has ravaged the market over times in the last two years, resulting in the loss of property worth millions of cedis and left some traders jobless.

City authorities have also come under intense criticisms for failing to implement various committee recommendations to halt the string of disaster at the market.

In May last year, President Mahama promised re- construction of the market into a modern facility by a Brazilian firm.

Meanwhile, market managers have asked traders to close by 5.30 as part of interim measures to address the fire problem.

Until work begins, authorities insist traders leave the market by that time (5.30 p.m), and the facility closed to the public daily as part of the security measures.

The move is to reduce congestion and also address illegal electricity connection and wrongful citing of structures.

Kumasi Mayor, Kojo Bonsu, tells LUV NEWS all is set for commencement of the project.

On his latest visit to the market, he assured traders of temporary sites will be available for them for business pending completion of work.

“We are on time because sod-cutting is expected to take place by end of March then work begins in April.

“We have plenty places to relocate them and that one is in order that is why we are not rushing so in due course we will inform you where they are going.

“The good thing is a new market will be built soon and all those problems fire will be a thing of the past,” Mayor Bonsu emphasized.

Some traders who spoke to Luv News are expectant about the project.

This is because they always seem to have their hearts in their mouths because fire has become somewhat a regular visitor to one of the biggest market in the country.

“We are waiting for the reconstruction to begin. We know what has happened to the ‘Race-Coss’ market project so we don’t expect this ending up like that.

“It is good he (Mayor Kojo Bonsu) has come down to visit us. The reconstruction starting soon is good because we want this perennial fire problem to stop because we have lost so much money and property as a result,” she said.
