Sellers at Kasoa traffic light asked to leave to avoid tragedy
3/31/2009 7:39:05 PM -
The Kasoa District Police Commander, DSP Jordan Quaye, has warned people selling on streets, especially along the main traffic lights of Kasoa, to leave the streets and relocate themselves at places safe for selling.
He has also appealed to officials of the District Assembly and market leaders to ensure that all traders, particularly children around such places quit immediately.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Kasoa Police Commander and copied to the Ghana News Agency, in Winneba.
According to DSP Jordan Quaye, the area is an accident-prone zone because of the high traffic on the road, which links Cape-Coast, Kasoa, Bawjiase, Swedru and Accra, among others.
He maintained that the move formed part of “ridding the streets of Kasoa of women, nursing mothers and children as part of a life-saving venture to be embarked upon by the Police in due course”.
DSP Jordan Quaye appealed to the Department of Social welfare, women's organisations, and sympathizers of children to assist in sensitizing street sellers to leave the place.
