Fish mongers who deal in dried fish and salt retailing at Bode-Racecourse market in Kumasi Metropolis have raised major concerns over a lot of challenges they are facing.
The Fish mongers(retailers) of about 860 were moved from Kumasi Central market by Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to trade at their current location.
Traders say Vehicles have overshadowed their market therefore their business is declining.
The market is not a lorry station but most of the drivers always park vehicles as they wait for others to load at their respective terminals.
“We sell all species of fish and other food stuffs here but we are outshined by vehicles. Drivers invariably park their cars right in front of us so it makes it difficult for our customers to find us. There is no way one will see a business is ongoing here because when look around, you only see vehicles parked but not traders, meanwhile we are here”, Madam Ampong, leader of the traders (Kwansohemaa) told Newstimesgh.com.
She has spoken severally with authorities of transport stations at Racecourse to relocate their drivers but nothing has been done.
Consequently, they are on the lookout for the intercession of Mr Osei Asibey Antwi, KMA Boss.
Traders believe he can handle the circumstances.
