Some female residents of Mamobi a slum suburb in Accra have vehemently rejected government free food been distributed to poor people as the fight against the virus intensifies.
The initiative which is been carried out by the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) under the auspices of the Ministry of Sanitation has seen a downturn.
These women when interviewed said:
“Please, we are very hungry. We were in the house when they brought the cooked food to us to eat. We don’t know those who cooked the food. Now that coronavirus is taking over the country, we may never know if those who cooked the food are infected or not and so we had to reject the food,” they said.
“We’ve been asked to stay home and that government will feed us and yes government has delivered as promised, but we were expecting bags of rice, oil, sardines, and provisions so we do the cooking ourselves, not already cooked meals. This thing the government is doing won’t help us at all,” they said angrily.
This was announced by President Nana Akufo-Addo on Sunday when he addressed the nation to update Ghanaians on some measures being taken by the government in the fight against the pandemic.
