The women of Takoradi who sell at night have been asked by the STMA to pay an additional 50p tax. This has made them furious and complains It’s a cheat for them (STMA) to decide on such demand from them because during the day. They pay 50p which is the cost of ticket for selling in the market .
According to the traders, they were paying 20p earlier but the fare has been increased to 50p which they have agreed to pay .
Also some mentioned,they do sell at night due to their situation of being a single parent and have to cater for their wards expenses . To them, paying of ticket twice a day is incomprehensible.
