Some traders have returned to pavements around the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange barely a month after the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) carried out a demolition exercise along some major pavements in Accra.
Despite AMA’s commitment to ensure that traders do not return to the pavements, their effort seems to be going down the drain as traders take over the pavements again.
Some traders were spotted doing brisk business near the Interchange with no AMA officer in sight to get them off.
On Monday, January 8, several illegally mounted structures were pulled down by the Assembly at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange.
Pavements were cleared of hawkers and traders in a bid to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa, as envisaged by the president.
