For many a Ghanaian, a meal without meat is not worth eating. In fact for some, when they eat meatless food, they say they have gone hungry. Meat is one of the most consumed products in Kasoa, a fast growing township in the central region where lots of cattle and other animal rearers reside. Meanwhile a new one has been put up by the assembly but work on it has not yet been completed.
Residents living in and around the town troop there to purchase all kinds of animals especially during festive seasons. They then employ the services of the only abattoir (for now) in the town to slaughter and process the meat for consumption.Photos by David Andoh.

An abatoir located at a sandy environment and they have never thought of the landscape and tiling the place.
How decent is this new abatoir? Why are the floors not tiled? Are wall tiles not necessary here? What about the surroundings of the building? Are they not going to tile the surroundings with pavement brick floor tiles ? Why are we not serious with issues about personal hygiene? And even the stucture seems to be too small. I wish I knew who designed this. And if i may ask, is this a government project or private? If this is a government project then it is very unfortunat but as usual, I believe this project was politically motivated and not need-driven. Too shoddy and i bet will never last. Give it 12 months and another contract will be awarded for the same project just around or renovation.
