About twenty-three (23) vendors at the Agbogbloshie market have been detained by public health officers from the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) for selling food on bare floors and in filthy circumstances.

From foodstuffs overexposed to sunlight to displaying food items on the streets near choked gutters, the officials were incensed by the level of disregard for hygiene standards.


Expressing her disappointment in the traders on their disregard for the Assembly’s bylaws on sanitation, the Mayor of Accra, Hon Elizabeth Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey, who joined the team ordered the immediate removal of traders selling on streets into the markets where they have shed.

The AMA boss reiterated that some of the traders after all the education and engagements over the years against displaying their goods on the bare ground and at unauthorised places still continued to go contrary adding that the Assembly would not show any mercy in dealing with such offenders anymore hence the arrest.
