Petty traders who earn a living from the CMB end of the Accra Central Business District of Accra finds it uneasy to bear with why the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (A.M.A.) would allow its taskforce break rules made by the city authority itself.
The hawkers claim the taskforce keep chasing them out when they only display goods beyond the line marked by the assembly so pedestrian would have their way to trek.
The system termed "redline" prevents hawkers from displaying stock in the full stretch of pavement to allow traffic flow. They told Rainbow business desk, one would hardly find their ceased goods exactly as they were ceased once the goods reach the offices of the authority.
Members of the taskforce take whatever they might be in need for, they claim. They further add, upon all that the trader is charged an amount of money to have the seized items back.
The traders are therefore calling on the A.M.A. to call its people to order as they (petty traders) try as they can to abide by all by-laws to help the state achieve its economic goals through the bit of taxes they contribute.
