Pastor Mensah Otabil, the founder of the International
Central Gospel Church has claimed that “fufu” is slowly killing
Africans.

Fufu, is an African food prepared from cooked cassava alone
or cassava and plantain, yam and or cocoyam, is one of the many favourite
delicacies across few Africa countries.
However, Pastor Mensah who was speaking at the National
Convocation of the 2017 Springboard Roadshow on the need for a change in the
attitudes of Africans, said that the process involved in the making of fufu is not hygienic
and too stressful.

“Any food that if
you have to eat you’ll have to punish yourself like this, what’s the sense in
it? And the annoying thing is when you’re pounding, the sweat will be going in
and will be mixed, and even in the mortar, there are all kinds of bacteria in
the corners, this is an ecosystem for bacteria, 5 years and we are still
pounding and people will say, that’s what we like.”

“It’s killing us;
because you know Africans we don’t know what kills us, the thing is killing us
but you say it’s a witch, because we never identify objectively the cause of
the problem…..Come to think of it, this fufu in this mortar is not sanitized
, what impact does it have on our lives?
He explained.
