Accra Metropolitan Assembly’s Exercise Showing Defective Reactionary Nature of Ghanaian Public Officials

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly has been on the warpath in recent times, forced to make a grandstand due to the cholera outbreak that has swept through the capital and most parts of the country.

One of the recent initiatives meant to battle the outbreak is a surprise inspection of food vendors within the metropolis, an initiative that has so far yielded some disgusting results; proving that we are not as safe as we would like to feel within our own capital.

What bugs me is that this is a problem we are all too familiar with. We go through our lives doing the minimum possible we can get away with, waiting for the inevitable outbreak of a disaster to force us to do what we should have been doing all along.

That is what the AMA has been doing with this recent clampdown on food vendors. The surprise inspection has spanned chop bars, restaurants, and is meant to tackle wayside vendors as well.

Aside the fact that these routine checks should be the status quo and not a panic measure when an epidemic sweeps over the country, the results gleaned so far should put the fear of God in any Ghanaian who patronises any food establishment outside their own homes.

You might say it’s not any surprise, Accra after all is engulfed in filth wherever you look, and people sell adjacent to gutters without any scruples. But whilst you would expect this kind of tactics from small time food vendors and the chop bars, the fact that restaurants, some of whom have huge reputations have fallen foul of the standards is a frightening thought.
