- The farmer, Papa Ndah, and his family have refused all attempts to leave the cemetery
- According to the queen mother, a report has been made to health officials
A farmer in Busua, a community in the Western region, has been accused for providing cassava grown at a cemetery for consumption.
Residents in the community came to this realization a few days ago, and have been calling for a severe penalty to be paid by the farmer, Papa Ndah.
The youth of the community argue that the farmer has acted in bad faith, as consumption of the said cassava could have negative health consequences for them.
It has however emerged that the farmer has been cultivating cassava at the cemetery for years. It is alleged he has clients from neighbouring towns as well.
It is alleged that the queen mother who resides at Busua, Nana Akissi Apenti III, knows of the practice, and revealed that Ndah has been living with his family in the cemetery for years.
She is said to have added that it was known they had been farming there as well.
She went on to say that all efforts to get the family out of the cemetery has yielded no positive results.
She has therefore lodged a complaint with health officials in the district, and is awaiting their response
