Don’t Sell Kejetia Shops To Foreigners …GUTA Warns KMA
The leadership of Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) has threatened to cause mayhem if any of the newly-built Kejetia stores are sold to foreigners by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA).
According to them, information reaching the leadership indicated that KMA had secretly started selling shops to foreigners, and stressed that they would not allow any foreigner to occupy shops at Kejetia.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Anthony Oppong, Chairman of GUTA, lamented that already some foreigners had infiltrated the Ghanaian market and was worried that giving them shops at Kejetia would worsen their plight
According to the GUTA chief, the association had for now, taken the news that foreigners were being given shops as rumour, adding that the association would resist, if the news turned out to be true.
“We have heard that some foreigners have bought some of the shops at the Kejetia Market and we want to send a strong warning to the KMA to stop such bad deals”.
“If we spot any foreigner at Kejetia when the facility is officially opened, the worst will happen to the KMA and the NPP government”, he sternly cautioned.
