The Chronicle can authoritatively confirm that work will begin in earnest on the construction of the much-awaited Sunshine City-Ghana Project at the old Race Course before the end of this month.
The management of the South Africa-based Kenbert Group of Companies has formally begun the peripheral construction of structures, and is expected to begin in earnest within the next few weeks ahead.
Electricians and other auxiliary staff were busily setting facilities in place to pave way for commencement of full work, which is also expected to include working in the night.
A management executive of Kenbert Group of Companies told the paper in an interview that work would first commence on the 20-acre ultra-modern shopping mall, which forms an integral part of the overall project.
The visit follows constant complaints by some residents about the delay in the commencement of the multi-billion cedi project, with rumours that the place had become a safe haven for criminals and other unscrupulous elements within the metropolis.
The management of the company has, however, denied such rumours, explaining that the place had been adequately secured,
with security personnel working day and night in and around the premises.
The assertion has, however, been confirmed by the paper during a visit to the premises on Monday, as there was tight security, preventing any unauthorised persons from entering the area.
The assurance by the management, however, should come as good news for residents who have anxiously been following developments ever since the traders were evicted two years ago to pave way for the construction of the proposed Sunshine City-Ghana project, being undertaken by a South African-based Ghanaian business tycoon, Mr. Robert Kwaku Appiah Asante.
