High electricity bills – new Kejetia-market
Traders at the new Kejetia market have given managers of
the facility a two-week ultimatum to address challenges with
their electricity bills. The over seven thousand stores depend
on a single metering system.
The traders are demanding separate meters to manage their
individual power consumption. The traders lamented the high
cost of electricity bills over the months.

They have complained to the authorities without any solution.
Some of them say their shops are locked up when they fail
to pay the bills on time. Nana Kwasi Prempeh,
leader of the traders, cited continuous flooding,
roof leakages, choked drains and non-functional
elevators at the market as some challenges.
He said the lack of a public address system at the market has
affected effective communication between management and traders.
According to him, accessibility to a section of the new Kejetia market
F-line is problematic. Traders plying their trade in that area continue
to count their losses everyday. Nobody come there to do business
with them because there is no access.
Traders have vowed to remove the barricade if management
fails to do that within two weeks.
Meanwhile, Managing Director of the Kejetia City Market Limited,
Kofi Duffuor, says the plight of the traders will soon be addressed.
