She said some of the landladies are telling students to change their bathing soaps simply because the fragrance is not what they prefer.

She added that some have even asked the students to buy perfumes for their washrooms and use them to spray anytime they visit the loo even when ventilators have been installed to absorb the smell.

Yaa Asabere further said that these international students pay around $750 CA$ monthly for rent so it is unfair for the landladies to harass them with those unnecessary rules.

She added that some of the Ghanaian landladies asked the students to cook only once a week, on Sundays, in their kitchens.

"You do all these things to the students and when they complain, you tell them not to complain. How can you tell a student who has rented your house that apart from Sunday, they cannot cook anytime they want? Elderly women, doing this, the men don't do this," she said.
