Floods in Kumasi ruin items at the Kejetia market.

Floods have ruined property worth tens of thousands of cedis at the newly-built Kejetia Market in Kumasi, Ashanti.

This follows two hours of rain in various regions of the city. Heavy rains have fallen in the Ashanti Regional capital for two nights in a row.

After the floodwaters retreated, retailers at the Kejetia market made an effort to remove any lingering flood water from their stalls.

Some of the goods that were ruined by the flood were moved out, while others were saved.

“The majority of the fabrics I sell are damp. And the nature of these things is such that if they come into contact with water, they cause a slew of problems,” one merchant told FoxpoolNews as he packed up whatever he could find.

The storm also flooded other parts of the city, including Anloga Junction, Dagomba Line, KNUST, and the Airport Roundabout.
