Members of the Kejetia Traders Association are calling for the head of Ashanti Regional Minister Hon Simon Osei Mensah after he ordered the Kumasi Metropolitan Assemby (KMA) to stop distribution of keys to shop owners of the newly constructed Kejetia market.

According to chairman of the association, Mr. Kwabena Obeng, they heard from the Regional Minister that they should return all the keys they collected to the KMA for reasons not clear to them.

At a press conference held on Thursday 7th November 2019, Mr. Kwabena Obeng made a passionate appeal to President Akufo-Addo to terminate the appointment of Hon Simon Osei Mensah because of his poor performance in the region.

He wondered why the regional minister is not focusing on his duty to rehabilitate deplorable roads in Kumasi but has spared such time to interfere with their businesses, which is the only source of living for them.
