The Government of Ghana through a company known as LAMENS INVESTMENTS AFRICA LIMITED has sanctioned the feeding of Senior High schools across Ghana with expired rice.
The directors of the company are David Agyefi Mensah and Simon Adjei
Our investigation has revealed that a food distribution company in the food distribution chain of the Free SHS with the support of the Education minister Dr. Osei Adutwum has succeeded in distributing almost 5 tones of expired rice to multiple senior high schools in Ghana.
The Company known as Lamens Investments Africa Limited imported 5 tones of rice meant to be distributed to various Senior High Schools in Ghana.
When the rice landed at the Tema port, Lamens Investments Africa Limited could not raise the needed revenue to clear the rice on time.
As a result, Customs took charge of the rice and moved the rice to a secured warehouse for safekeeping while they tasked Lamens to look for money to clear their goods.
The 50KG Bags of rice bagged in a yellow bag comes with the name MOSHOSHO RICE imported from India.
Interestingly, while the rice was under lock at the said warehouse, our investigation revealed, that the 5 tones of rice are going to expire on December 2023.
In a rush attempt and with the support of some powerful hands in the NPP Government like the Education Minister Yaw Osei Adutwum, Former Education Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh, and Vice President Bawumia, Lamens Company went to the said Warehouse of the Customs with National Security operatives and the military to forcefully evacuate 2 tones of the said rice and began mass distribution of these expired rice to various schools in the country.
Because the rice was due to expire in December 2023, they continuously “perfumed” the rice while they repackaged it into new bags for distribution without approval from FDA or any regulatory body.
As we speak, they have succeeded in distributing over 20,00 bags of expired rice to various senior high schools in Ghana for free Shs kids to consume.
