The buyers and market women of Fishery Market in the Gbo Lambayama community along the Maxwell Khobe street have called on the Government and the Mayor of Kenema City Council to clean the market as the market condition does not favor them as market women and buyers of the said market.

This is due to the poor sanitation coupled with garbage all over the place, and blocked drainage that now serves as a breeding ground for mosquitoes and flies.
The Fishery Market serves the whole of Nyandeyama community, including Maxwell Khobe Street, Dogo and Prison Barracks and also is the centre market of Kenema city. Garbage has now over taken the market and the public demands the attention of the government and that of the Kenema City Council.
The Fishery Market is located at the eye of Kenema city and located on the route that leads to the all important office of government in Kenema city and has created embarrassment to visitors entering Kenema for the first time, especially during the raining season.
This press caught up with Aminata Kamara who sells at Fishery Market. She said “we are not happy with the amount of garbage in the market because it is not good for our health, as you can see the place is filthy, and the gutters are always blocked with all kind of rubbish,” she end.
Chief Ya Musu Kamara who spoke to this reporter said that the market is facing a lot of problems with sanitation, adding that they always called the Kenema city council and youth to help them clean the market and market women contributing small amounts to clean the said place.
Mrs. Musa a housewife that visits the market daily for shopping said, “I have never witnessed any cleaning or seen this market clean, the place is always flooded with water all over the place.”
Contacting Kenema City Council, they confirmed that the problem is a continuous one but that the city is working hard to keep the market clean.
