Some market women in Accra are expressing dissatisfaction over what they describe as the discriminatory tax abolition for head porters (kayayei).
Finance minister, Ken Ofori Attah in his maiden state of nation address revealed that government will be scraping off taxes for kayayei and spare part dealers
"They say the Kayayei should pay the levy so we won't also pay, if they are discriminating then we won't agree as we all voted for Nana Akufo-Addo. Dr Bawumia should fix this; if the head porters are not paying, we won't also pay," a trader told Joy News.
These aggrieved traders are thus calling on government to abolish their levy, claiming the Kayayei are not in any way better than them.
