KMA Descends On Illegal Kiosks

Sam Paye

OWNERS OF kiosks and containers, illegally placed in Kumasi, have up till Friday, March 31, 2023, to remove them in their own interest.

Failure to comply with this order would compel the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) to remove them at the cost of the owners.

In a press release, authored by the KMA, the assembly complained that illegal kiosks and containers had sprung up in Kumasi.

“The management of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly has noted with serious concern the proliferation of kiosks and containers in the city.

“In view of this, the assembly has tasked the Spatial Planning Committee to remove all such containers from the commercial roads.

“Management wishes to state categorically that such activities have been grossly done without planning approval and permissions.

“By this release, the assembly has ordered anyone with kiosks or containers around the underlisted areas to remove them by Friday, March 31, 2023,” the release said.

The KMA mentioned Western By-Pass Abrepo Junction to Santasi Roundabout, Ridge-Denyame and Residential Areas, among others, as the roads where the kiosks and containers should be removed.
