Angry traders and street hawkers at Madina Zongo junction in Accra who were ejected from the streets on Monday by the La-Nkwantanan Municipal Assembly are demanding the removal of the Municipal Chief Executive for the area Jenifer Dede Afagbedzi for treating them unfairly.

The traders and streets who are over 5000 in number were on Monday ejected from the streets and relocated to a parcel of land near Redco flats.

The land in question was previously being occupied by squatters until they were recently ejected by the assembly. Since the assembly ejected the squatters there has not been any serious development in the area to make it decent for people to do business there.

The angry traders and street hawkers who accused the La Nkwantanan Municipal Chief Executive Hon. Jennifer Dede Afagbedzi of treating them unfairly, said the area is not in good shape adding that there are no facilities like toilets and sheds and wondering how they could cope there.

They argued that giving the dusty nature of the area, it would become difficult for them to ply their business if it rains. When got to the area on Tuesday afternoon there was heavy police presence as well as NADMO officials.

The traders were cleared from the land and made to stand behind the wall under the scorching sun for several hours. Our News team gathered that officials of the Assembly evicted the traders from area to pave way for proper allocation of the place.

They accused some of the officials of taking money from foreigners especially Nigerians in the area and allocating them an area to occupy.
