THE Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has demolished 30 buildings at Abouhia New Site, a suburb of Kumasi, to pave way for the construction of access roads in the area.
The buildings, some of which were near completion, were sited in areas earmarked for road construction and the KMA insisted that it had every reason to demolish them.
Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE), Samuel Sarpong, has inspected the roads works going on in the area.
He told the Daily Graphic in Kumasi that the KMA would not sit down for people to build anyhow.
Mr Sarpong said developers must abide by building regulations, warning that those who contravened the laws would not be spared.
The chief executive gave the assurance that the assembly was determined to make Kumasi a better place to live.
“I, therefore, call on residents to give the assembly all the needed support to enable it to deliver,” he added.
