The system is messed up....survival by any means..... stubborn.
Mikdad Mohammed said they are just trying to survive.
They are merely squatters trying to survive in their kiosk homes.
Tony Goodman was being sarcastic about it
Fufuo under overpass has a different feeling, try it.

Maurice Essel-Okyiahene thinks she didn't know what happened to the woman who was arrested for pounding fufu at the Pokuase Interchange,
I think she didn’t hear what happened to the one who tried the same things under the Pokuase interchange she surely will be flashed out
Pavement of newly constructed Pokuase Interchange turned to 'fufu' chop bar in video
In August 2021, a video of some people using a section of the pavement of the newly commissioned Four Tier Pokuase Interchange as an eatery emerged on social media.
The video showed a man pounding 'fufu' on the pavement by the roadside and a woman standing behind a table with food arranged on the table.
It appeared the section of that road was not in use as some pedestrians were seen walking on the road, with the pavement being used as an eatery (chop bar).
The two operators who were believed to be husband and wife were later arrested.
