Market women celebrate Dist.10 Lawmaker for putting halt to Sunday selling

Marketers in District #10, Montserrado County, have admitted of entering into an agreement to prohibit Sundays selling, contrary to reports that it was a unilateral decision taken by Representative Yekeh Kolubah.

The District 10 lawmaker has come under public criticism that he unilaterally ordered the closure of business centers on Sunday.

But speaking to Farbric news, several market women said Rep. Kolubah’s involvement with the Marketers’ decision to sell on Sundays was misconstrued that he was directly enforcing a mandate to deny commercial activities in the district.

The Market women said selling on Sunday has denied them the opportunity to attend their church services something which led them to sign an agreement to cancel selling on Sunday in the market.

They named filthiness of the market buildings, among others, which according to them, led to huge fines imposed by the Monrovia City Corporation for failure to keep their market environment sanitary.

Jubilant market women, most of whom seem excited about the work of their Lawmaker, said, selling on Sundays has been characterized with several issues.

Fellow lawmaker, Montserrado County District # 8 Rep. Moses Acarous Gray has termed as constitutional violation, Rep. Yekeh Kolubah’s action in District # 10.

Rep. Gray said he is preparing a letter for plenary considering warning, suspension or expulsion of Rep. Kolubah.
