Over a dozen students of the Oti Boateng Senior High School in Koforidua, have been hospitalised over what school authorities suspect to be a foodborne illness.
Reports say the students started complaining of severe tummy upsets after they ate ‘waakye’, a popular meal prepared with rice and beans Monday from the school’s kitchen, JoyNews has learnt.
Although school authorities are yet to officially speak to the issue, a source close to the school has told JoyNews that scores of students complained of diarrhoea after consuming the food.
The affected students were rushed to the Regional Hospital at Koforidua, where they are receiving treatment, the source added.
