Marwako Food Poisoning: Authority Has No Mandate To Demand Compensation For Victims – FDA

Marwako Food Poisoning: Authority Has No Mandate To Demand Compensation For Victims - FDA

Food and Drugs Authority (FDA)’s Director of Legal says they cannot demand compensation for victims of the alleged food poisoning at Marwako’s East Legon branch.

Joseph Bennie said the Authority has no mandate to pressure for amends in cash from the eatery to the affected persons.

In an interview with YEN.com.gh, monitored by GhArticles.com, Bennie said the FDA can carry out sanctions in the form of ”a ban, fine, caution, or prosecution” in such cases.

The Acting Director’s comments come amid widespread reports of food poisoning at Marwako’s East Legon branch on social media, leading to the closure of the restaurant.

He said the closure of the eatery was to prevent an escalation of reported cases of food poisoning.

Speaking on the investigations, Joseph Bennie said the FDA is yet to establish the cause of the food poisoning. ”Investigations will conclude in not less than a week or more,” he told YEN.comgh, sighted by GhArticles.com.

As previously reported that the management of Marwako has appealed to the FDA to open other branches closed down following complaints of food poisoning at its East Legon branch.

PRO for Marwako Fast Food Ltd, Mohammed Amin Lamptey, said while the popular food business accepts the decision of the FDA, the industry regulator, it is only fair for the affected branch to be shut down.

”The FDA shut down of our branches is quite unfortunate and it is really something that is going to create another problem for Mawako Fast Foods Limited. In as much as we all know that it is an isolated case…we thought that the FDA will focus on the East Legon branch,” Lamptey told reporters on Thursday, May 12, 2022.

Reduce 1.5% E-levy Rate — ISSER To Gov’t

Published

E-levy Proceeds Will Create Jobs For Over 11 Million People - Ofori-Atta

The Institute of Statistical Social and Economic Research (ISSER) wants the government to reduce the rate of the controversial electronic transfer levy.

According to ISSER, the government must consider a downward adjustment between 0.5% and 0.75% adding that the 1.5% on all electronic transfers is punitive.

The Director of the institute, Professor Peter Quartey, speaking on the topic: “Harnessing stakeholder engagement and feedback for research impact” at the 2022 ISSER Road Show at the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) said with the current 1.5% rate, the government’s goal of mobilizing about GH¢4.1 billion would be missed as more people would avoid using the platform but instead use alternative methods to avoid paying the tax.

He stated that “The 1.5% E-transaction levy rate is punitive and should be revised downwards to between 0.5% and 0.75% to allow more people to use the service and avoid eroding the gains made in digital financial inclusion.”

The E-levy was introduced by the government in the 2022 Budget for basic transactions related to digital payments and electronic platform transactions.

The levy has sparked controversy because of its impact on mobile money transactions and the impoverished Ghanaians that use it.
