Over 30 Ajumako Afransi Technical students hospitalized after consuming contaminated food

Over 30 students of Ajumako Afransi Technical and Vocational Institute in the Ajumako Enyan Essiam District of the Central Region have been hospitalized after allegedly consuming contaminated food.

The students complained of stomach upset after eating waakye and stew for lunch on Tuesday, June 11, 2024.

Some vomited, while others lay helplessly in their dormitories.


School authorities rushed the affected students to the Ajumako Baah Salvation Army Polyclinic for treatment. Parents, upon hearing the news, visited their wards at the hospital and school.

According to Daniel Agyeakpor, Physician Assistant at the Salvation Army Polyclinic, preliminary medical investigations and laboratory tests are being conducted to determine the cause of the diarrhea and stomach pains.

Esther Essandoh, Administrator of the Salvation Army Polyclinic, appealed for government support to enhance the facility’s capacity to handle such cases.
