Parts of new Kejetia market destroyed by fire

Portions of the new Kejetia Market in the Ashanti Regional capital Kumasi have been gutted by fire on Tuesday May 11.

Even though it was a daunting task, personnel of the Ghana National Fire Service were able to douse the inferno and prevented it from spreading to other properties..

Speaking to journalists, Managing Director of the market, Kofi Duffuor said “We are going to open the market tomorrow at 11. We have to go back and test all the systems again.

“We are going to get the professionals – the fire service, the electrical engineers to come in, work with us and the security as well to ensure everything is in order after which we will open the market for people to come in.

“People must be assured of their safety. Life is the most important ingredient one has. So we must ensure that people are protected in the morning. “

“We will clean up, make sure the whole place is put in good order then we will open for our valuable clients to come in and do business,” he stated.
