Some traders at Sunyani in the Bono Region are not happy with how waste management company, Zoomlion Ghana Limited and the Sunyani Municipal Assembly are dealing with them.
According to them, authorities responsible for clearing refuse at the area have failed to discharge their duties.
Some traders explained they have to pay money on their own to hire laborers to clamp down on the filth which is getting out of hands.
“There have been occasions where the refuse dumped here produced some unknown insects and smelly scents which are torturing us here. We can count on numerous occasions you can’t even eat here due to bad scent from the refuse dumped here; it’s really affecting our health. We’re appealing to the government and any organization to come to our aid if not we’re dying.” they stated.
They added that sometimes buying food commodities become a problem because of how tough and inconsistent traders have been purchasing food from the market .
“Sometimes we have to struggle all day but our effort proves futile because at the end of the day, you won’t get what you aimed at before coming to market.”
