Some Ghanaians who returned from Libya are appealing to the government to ensure that they receive their belongings as promised them.

The returnees, who are being hosted at the El-Wak Sports stadium, said they have waited for over 2weeks in expectation of receiving their luggage but to no avail.

In an interview with Peace FM, some of the evacuees recounted their experiences since arriving in Ghana, claiming they have not been given food, water nor mattresses to sleep on.

Over 5,000 evacuees have arrived from Libya since the political clashes broke out between government forces and rebels who are fighting to end the 42-year rule of Col. Muammar al Gaddafi.

The evacuees have called on government to speed up processes in getting their belongings into the country since their livelihood depended on them.
