Police officers deployed to enforce social distancing at one of the markets in the Accra Central Business District are having a hard time regulating the traders.

Maame Esi Thompson was at the CMB Gate One market and reports social distancing protocols had been literally thrown out of the window despite the police’s best efforts.

Tthough the police managed to get them off the streets, it doesn’t take long for them to return with their wares.

Images from the CMB gate one market in Accra’s Central Business District tell the stories better.
