Market women and other traders who squat on the Ughelli Bridge to do
their business have been ordered to vacate the premises with immediate
effect.

The Commissioner of Environment, Mr. Frank Omare who is also the
chairman of special task force on control and removal of illegal
structures gave the order on Friday, July 15 during a working visit to
Ughelli.

The chairman of the task force declared that all illegal structures on
the waterway and major roads of the town will be demolished
irrespective of the social status of the owner.

He encouraged the market women to relocate their shops to the open
spaces in the ultra modern market located at the Ughelli Patani road
assuring that preference will be given to them to occupy space.

For those who would not be comfortable with the ultra modern market
option, the Commissioner advised them to raise up structures at the
back of the Ughelli main market to do their business, so far they
vacate the road, he emphasized.
