KAKATA, Jan 19 (LINA) -The Mayor of Kakata City, Eddie Murphy, has ordered the removal of marketers from the main streets of Kakata City, the provincial capital of Margibi County.
The Mayor said his action was informed by City Ordinance One which forbids street selling and littering of streets.
Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Kakata Saturday, Mayor Murphy emphasized that the ordinance is intended to keep the main streets of Kakata clean at all times.
Mayor Murphy said the city ordinance will remain in full force so as to keep the city of Kakata clean.
He warned marketers to stay away from the streets, threatening that any marketer violating the order will be dealt with in keeping with the law.
However, when contacted by the Liberia News Agency, the marketers appealed to the Kakata City Corporation to give them time to relocate.
They expressed support for the relocation exercise, but said they needed time to find appropriate areas to resettle.
