Ga East market women call for the head of the MCE

Traders at Dome, Kwabenya and Taifa markets in Accra are up in arms against the Ga East Municipal Assembly Chief Executive, Kaakie Mann.

They are calling on President Akufo-Addo to, as a matter of urgency, relieve the Municipal Chief Executive of her current position for showing gross disrespect to traders.

At a joint press conference to express their displeasure, the angry traders accused the MCE of prioritising personal interest over the development of the markets, which raked in a lot of revenue for the assembly.

“We have met here this morning to register our displeasure and grievance about the maltreatment, oppression and disrespectful treatment meted on us by the Ga East MCE, Honourable Kaakie Mann. Instead of concentrating on bringing progress and improvement to the welfare of the traders, she has rather taken a keen interest in creating division among the traders.

“She is not a unifier; she came to disturb the peace of the market. Kaakie must go! Kaakie must go!” their statement read.

Vicentia Lamptey, a Level 300 student who helps her mother sell in the market, believed that the MCE does not have respect for the traders and, thus, does not work in their interest.

“I’m a student helping my mother sell here in the market. Kaakit comes and sacks women at any time she wants. How do you expect my mom to get money to pay my fees if she is driven out of the market,” she said.

Some traders also shared what they refer to as maltreatment by the MCE.

“We don’t understand what she’s doing, and I don’t think that’s the work of an MCE. She has her own duties, and the queen mothers here have their own duties. We plead with the government to dismiss her,” said a trader who is not pleased with the MCEs administration.

Another trader said, “without any reason, we were sitting there with a diabetic patient about to eat. All of a sudden, Kaakie banged inside the office without greeting, without saying anything, ‘she’s the one… she’s the one! Handcuff her!”
