Kejetia Market Insurance expired in 2022
The Health, Environment and Safety Manager of the Ultra-modern Kejetia Market, Nana Opoku Amankwah has indicated that the market did not have insurance at the time of the inferno.
According to him, the insurance cover for the Kejetia market had expired in November 2022 but they were yet to renew it.
The official explaining what caused the delays in renewing their insurance package blamed the fact that people who were allocated stalls in the market had not finished with their payment.
“The Kejetia market is not insured. From my checks, the insurance expired in 2022. It was in November 2022 and we have not been able to renew it. We have delayed the renewal because the amount we are supposed to be paying is over Ghc600,000 and we’ve not been able to get that money,” he told Kumasi-based Abusua FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com
Parts of the Kejetia Market in Kumasi were razed down by fire on Wednesday, March 15, 2023.
The fire destroyed goods worth millions of cedis. It was efforts by firefighters which stopped the spread of the fire which could have caused severe damage.
