Kejetia Market fire: Sack facility managers, says association

Kejetia Market on fire (15 March 2023)

The general secretary of the Combined Traders Associations Ruben Amey wants the facility managers at the Kejetia Market to be dismissed after fire destroyed parts of the trading area last Wednesday (14 March).

Property including 32 stores worth thousands of Ghana cedis were destroyed in the fire. The government has since set up a committee to unravel the cause of the incident.

Speaking to sit-in host of the Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (21 March), Amey said the management of the market failed to demonstrate leadership.

“It is clear to us that heads must roll and that should start with the managing director and the head of the board,” he said. “How can the management oversee this shameful event and nobody be held responsible?”

“Rules are there for a reason and we have specific institutions to implement said regulations, but the management here have totally failed us.

“There are CCTV cameras here together with several security personnel and yet the management failed to show leadership,” Amey added.
