FOOD VENDORS GO TO SCHOOL OVER CHOLERA

Source:  |  Date Published:

FOOD VENDORS operating in Kumasi, capital of Ashanti region, have been schooled about acceptable ways of cooking in order to avoid contamination.
The one-day educative workshop was organized by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) at the Center for National Culture in Kumasi recently.
The workshop forms part of series of interventions by the KMA to help prevent the outbreak of cholera in the city, especially as the raining season looms.
The commendable workshop is also part of the KMAâ??s resolve to make Kumasi become tidy and reclaim its old â??Garden Cityâ?? status within a short span.
Addressing the food vendors, the Kumasi Mayor, Osei Assibey Antwi, sternly warned about the dangers, in case there is a cholera outbreak in the city.
In this regard, he therefore admonished residents of the city to always keep their environment clean at all times to help avert an outbreak of diseases.
Osei Assibey particularly charged the food vendors to cook their foods in a hygienic environment to help prevent the possibility of a disease outbreak.
He announced that the KMA would soon select some medical facilities that would screen and issue certificates to the food vendors, ahead of the raining season.
