UE/R: Free SHS students being served ‘Gari Jollof’, ‘Donkey Saliva’ as food runs short

Some Senior High School students in the Upper East Region have expressed worry over the kind of food usually served to them.

They said often than not, “Gari Jollof” and “Donkey Saliva” are predominantly on their menu.

Gari Jollof, as they called it, is a mixture of gari, palm nut oil and salt with little pepper while the “Donkey Saliva” is a mixture of wheat flour, groundnut paste and other ingredients to form groundnut soup served with plain rice.

Some of the students who spoke to Class News’ Moses Appiah said although they disapprove of the meals being served to them, they prefer the “Gari Jollof” to the “Donkey Saliva”.
