'Boolaho' traders protest against market demolition

Some traders at Boolaho market in the Kumasi Metropolis have hit the streets to protest a planned demolition of their shops at the market by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA).

The traders are demonstrating over what they described as ill treatment by KMA to forceful evict them from a place they make their living.

Clad in red and black outfits and chanting war songs, the traders went to the Manhyia Palace to appeal to the Asantehemaa, Nana Ama Konadu, to intervene in the matter.

According to them, they were not informed by the KMA about the terms and conditions of the demolition, a situation they have described as sheer disrespect to them.
