Tensions have been high between the KMA and tricycle operators in Kumasi due to the KMA’s decision to ban the operation of tricycles known as “Pragya” in the central business district. The Head of Communications at the KMA, Nana Afuah Konadu, stated that despite the scuffle and injuries sustained, the KMA intends to stick to its decision.

Nana Afuah Konadu further explained, “The situation escalated to a point where injuries were evident, and it became clear that they were disregarding law and order. The military had to intervene and disperse the crowd. This operation will continue for another week, and its continuation afterward will depend on the circumstances.”

On August 2, tricycle operators in the region escalated their protest against the directive limiting their movement in parts of the Central Business District. This led to the blocking of a major road leading to Kejetia, causing significant disruptions to traffic and daily routines.
