Hawkers bouncing back onto the streets

Posted by Business in Ghana on July 9, 2009

Hawkers who are being driven off the streets are said to be gradually returning onto the streets and pavements of the capital. Joy News reporter David Youngs visited some streets in the capital and reported the authorities are struggling to deal with the situation.  At the Tudu, CMB, the Rawlings Circle, and the Tema Station areas – all in the central business district of Accra – police, fire and prison officers as well as AMA city guards are still struggling to check the hawkers off the streets.  Although these hawkers were driven away by the AMA they have found a new way to ply their trade.
