AMA RESPONDS TO KWAME NKRUMAH INTERCHANGE ALLEGED ASSAULT CASE.
The Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has denied reports that some traders at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle were on last Saturday assaulted by some personnel from the AMA.
In a statement signed and issued by the Director of Public Relations at the AMA, Nummo Blafo III, the AMA said the report of assault was misleading and lacked factual grounds.
It is about a trader who was alleged to have been assaulted by personnel of the AMA Rapid Response Unit (RRU); a unit tasked to ensure that hawkers do not encroach the pavements around the Interchange.
The publications so far contained some factual inaccuracies that the AMA would like to correct in order not to give the public a misleading impression about the incident.
It is unfortunate that none of the media that carried the story verified their facts with the AMA before publication.
What occurred there did not involve the AMA Rapid Response Unit (RRU). It was rather between personnel of the United Creative Solutions (UCS), a company contracted by the AMA to manage the lawn and other facilities at the circle Interchange, and a trader who was believed to have trespassed to the decongested area.
Contrary to media reports, no one died as a result of the incident though regrettably one trader was injured and is receiving medical attention at the 37 Military Hospital at the full expense of management of UCS.
AMA is investigating the matter and will put measures in place to avoid any future occurrence of such incidences. The AMA have also noticed that some undisciplined traders want to use this incident as a leeway to frustrate the efforts of sanitising the enclave.
We therefore state unequivocally that the AMA will not relent in its efforts to fully implement our bylaws and activate the punitive sanctions thereof. The AMA however entreats all city dwellers to support the efforts being rolled out as we strive to make Accra the cleanest city in Africa.
