- Final year JHS students of Penyipedo-Tamekope A.M.E Zion Basic School have bemoaned the kind of meals they eat
- The students said that the past two days have been very worrying in relation to the free meals
- President Akufo-Addo promised one free meal a day to final year students in his last COVID-19 update
Form Three students of the Penyipedo-Tamekope A.M.E Zion Basic School in the Ketu North Municipality are complaining bitterly about the food they are served.
In an interview with YEN.com.gh's reporter in the Volta Region, the students complained that the jollof rice they were served on August 24, 2020, was having sand particles in it.
A student, Agbodemegbe Mensah, when asked how the Jollof tasted, said it was having sand in it so they do not like it.
Mensah was quoted as saying:
"The food is not good, the stew is having some sand inside so we don't like that food at all,"
The students added that the jollof rice was also cold when it was brought to them from the district.
According to the students, the coldness of the food and the numerous sand particles in it made some of them lose appetite and had to throw the food away.
Talking of the food served them on August 25, 2020, the students said the pepper which was served with the banku had no taste; a reason some of them had to stop eating the food.
Some also complained about the small meat added to the food saying they needed more than that as they are not children to be given small meat.
However, an earlier indication from the Headmaster of the school, Mr. Dzikunu had it that the hot food promised by President Akufo-Addo was not what his students were served with on all 2 days that they complained about.
In another piece of disturbing news, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that illegal logging which Ghana's laws frown on is what some unpatriotic residents of Klefe, a town in the Ho Municipality are engaging in at the blind side of authorities.
Klefe is a town that looks attractive due to its thick and tall forests and numerous hills and it is home to some illegal loggers.
The popular town is the hometown to the Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa and is blessed with lots of valuable trees that are on the verge of being completely wiped out if actions are not taken as soon as possible.
