‘Kako’ and ‘Mamane’ sellers in the Sekondi-Takoradi kick against FDA boss on the call to stop eating ‘Kako’

The Market women in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis of the Western Region has taken a swift reservation to the call made by the Western Regional Food and Drug Authority Manager, Alhaji Abu Sumaila asking the public to stop eating salted fish (‘Kako’ and ‘Momone’) for one month.

The Kojokrom Market Queen, Madam Akua Grace in an interview with Ghananest.com said that their fish are safe, urging the customers to come and buy because the salted fish are safe and nothing has changed.

“It is still the delicious ‘Kako’ and ‘Momone’,” she appealed.

According to them, if FDA boss continue asking Ghanaians to stop eating the salted fish it will collapse their business.

“We disagree with the officials of the FDA boss he should direct his suggestions to their colleagues at Agona Nkwanta and Tarkwa markets since they don’t buy from Axim beach where the Dolphins were found,” the Market women said.

“We don’t even buy from Axim so why should the man say that, we buy ours from Senegal ,in fact they bring it down to the capital and we buy it, dry it and processed it neatly for about a week or two before we bring it to the market so that cannot be the dolphins they are talking about,” the Market Queen said.

Western Regional Manager of Food Drug Authority, Alhaji Abu Sumaila, in an interview with Atinka Media Village on Tuesday April 6, 2021, that the public should suspend the eating of ‘Kako’ and ‘Momone’ for at least a month pending the investigations by the authority on the death of the beached fishes at Axim and Accra respectively.
