A Lady Served Meat That Looks Like Male Genital At A Restaurant



                  

A lady identified as Akosua has narrated how she was served a 'banana'-like meat at a restaurant she bought food at Pokuase in Accra, Ghana.

The lady said she went to buy food at the eatery only for her to discover a male-looking genital in her food after almost finishing the meal. She said:

"I had gone to get some food from the food joint because I was hungry and my preferred choice was Tuo Zaafi which I bought and took home to eat, I had eaten all the other meat in the soup and was about finishing off with the biggest piece when I noticed the funny looking meat which looked like a male genital organ." She also stated that she alerted her family about the strange meal she ate and they all laughed about it saying they will feed it to the dog before her sister insisted that an investigation should be put in place either by reporting it to the police or the laboratory...
"My sister opted to show it to a lab technician friend later, who said because the meat was cooked, an ordinary lab test wouldn’t be able to prove it to be animal or human. He advised a forensic test be done on it but considering the bureaucratic processes these things go through, we gave up and the meat lies in our fridge."

As America Elects New President Today


            

The people of the United States of America goes to the polls today to vote in the 45th President of the country. To many watchers within and outside the country, fondly described by its citizens as ‘God’s-own-country’, the people will not only be performing their civic responsibility; they will be putting the country’s over 200-year-old democracy to test once again.

The last time American voters faced such an onerous task was 2008, when the then Senator Barack Obama, a Democratic Party candidate, broke the jinx by emerging the first black to be sworn-in as President after a keenly contested election.

This time, the race for the White House is clear,

neck-to-neck between former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who is the standard bearer of the Democrats and the Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

While one is on the verge of making history as the first woman to be sworn in as President of the US, the other is a highly successful entrepreneur and vintage ‘money bag.’
