Traders at the Kejetia market are stranded after yesterday’s inferno.
The Management of Kumasi City Market Limited (KCML) says the Kejetia Market Complex will not open on Thursday, March 16, 2023, from morning until 12:00pm.
This comes on the back of a fire outbreak on the market that started later hours of afternoon Wednesday, March 15, 2023, which resulted in damage to some shops.
A source disclosed to Ghananest.com that about 35 shops were totally affected by the inferno, which started around 4pm yesterday.
