The Chief Executive of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly says victims of Kejetia Market flooding cannot be compensated.
Samuel Pyne who serves as the Board Chairman for the Kejetia City Market, says the insurance package covering the market is for the structure and not for the wares of the traders.
Last week, some traders at the Kejetia market had their merchandise worth thousands of cedis destroyed following another pipe burst and the traders demanded compensation.
Affected traders claim thousands of cedis worth goods have been lost to the floods.
Some victims have been prevailing on management of the market for compensation.
Samuel Pyne entreated the traders to contact insurance companies for their individual wares. The leadership of the traders find his comments distasteful.
They say they will default payment of the premium if they are not compensated for the damage caused by the flooding.
“We will default payments of utility bills including premium until we are able to pay our members who are victims of the flooding,” Reuben Amey, Secretary to the traders associations, said.
