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.

If there is a law in this country and the health of the people is important, why shouldnt buldozers raze down this structure and these guys arrested for serving the public with meat processed in an unhygienic condition?
Do we have a health ministry and do they care?
