Nana Agyenim Boateng, Amoamanhene, Chairman of the Kejetia Oversight Validation Committee has expressed satisfaction with the ongoing validation exercise in Kumasi. According to him, the Committee initially thought it was going to go through some setbacks but fortunately this has not been the case. Everything is going on smoothly. ‘We anticipated  that 4,000 people will be validated in one month but the speed at which we are moving, I think we can surpass that figure, Nana Agyenim Boateng told the media over the weekend.   

The validation exercise which started last Wednesday is ongoing and is expected that shop owners and occupants of the former Kejetia Terminal who were registered before the commencement of the Kejetia/Central Market Redevelopment Project are validated to establish the true owners of the shops. He disclosed that 108 shop owners who were not available when the KMA registered the traders in 2015 will be allowed to register after they have gone through the due process. Nana Agyenim Boateng however said that two persons who posed as shop owners and could not provide any authentic documentation were rejected.

   The KMA recently announced the constitution of an eleven (11)-member Kejetia Validation Oversight Committee with Amoamanhene as the Chairman. Other members include Ohene Owusu Afriyie, Apagyahene representing the Kumasi Traditional Council, Hon.  Alexander Sarfo Kessie,  Convener for  Trade and Industry  Sub-committee(KMA) ,  Miss Juliana Nsiah, Estate Department, KMA; Nana Yaa Foriwaa, Market Queen,  Kumasi Central Market, Mr. Elvis Owusu, representing  Kejetia Occupants Association,  Nana Brasiamah, Regional GPRTU Chairman, Madam Theresa Osei Tutu, of AvanGuard Design Services and Miss Yvonne Naboo, Deputy Director, KMA (Member/Secretary). 

 Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of KMA, Mr, Godwin Okumah Nyame has disclosed that the exercise is  ongoing and that from , Monday, September 24 2018, the committee would take  care of traders from blocks A,B and C; while those of MLS and TSS blocks would be attended to on Tuesday September, 25 2018.
