KMA to Kejetia traders: Don’t pay money to unauthorized individuals for shops
The Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has stated that it has been made aware of the activities of some unidentified individuals who are allegedly extorting money from gullible victims while the Kejetia Redevelopment Project is still being built, all while giving them access to stores in phase II.
The KMA warned that anyone dealing with such unlicensed individuals does so at their own risk in a statement, claiming that no decision has been made regarding the amount to be paid on the allotment of stores.
Whoever pays money to anyone in the hopes of receiving an allocation at the central market does so at their own risk, the management wishes to state categorically. Such news and the people involved are not approved by them.
It should be mentioned that no decision has been made on the sum to be paid for the store allocation when the project is finished.
All of this information regarding shop allocation, payment, and payment methods will be made public when the time is right.
The KMA is inviting the public to report anyone who commits such activities to the secretariat of the Metropolitan chief executive or the security authorities for further action, even though such communication would be made public in due course.
The general public is recommended to report anyone who requests payment in exchange for being provided a shop or shops at the central market to the secretariat of the metro chief executive (Mayor) and the metro coordinating director (MCD) or to the competent security agency.
