Unpaid school feeding caterers threaten naked demo
Some school feeding caterers contracted in 2016 in the erstwhile Mahama administration in the Ashanti Region have threatened to picket Jubilee House naked over their arrears.
Numbering 134, the caterers averred that government has deliberately refused to pay their arrears for the first term after payments for the second and third terms within the year.
They said all efforts to get the Ministry of Finance through the Gender, Child and Social Protection Ministry to pay them their arrears have proven futile.
Mrs Monica Terlabi, leader of the agitated women, told journalists at a press conference on Tuesday, 24 July 2018 that banks are on their necks for the monies they borrowed to pre-finance their services, adding that they can no longer withstand the pressure.
Mrs Terlabi said although they were awarded the contract in the previous administration, they are Ghanaians and, therefore, called on government not to play politics with their livelihood.
