The commencement of the second phase of the Kumasi Kejetia Market Redevelopment Project has been faced with a major setback as some affected traders have secured an interim injunction to stop the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) and the developer, Contracta Engenharia from carrying on with the construction.
The writ of summons available to this writer suggests that, the occupants of 150p lockable shops in the vicinity of the construction site wants the project halted until such a time that all outstanding issues are resolved.
In all seven applicants, through their lawyers, Owusu Bempah Law Chambers is praying the High Court for an order restraining the KMA and the contractor "from demolishing close to about 1500 lockable shops occupied by the applicants in the Central Market Kumasi."
Last week, the KMA begun a demolishing exercise in parts of the Kumasi Central Business District to give way for the commencement of phase 2 of the project amidst traders agitations.
