“I will never stop taking Gari and shito with me when i travel on a plane”- Dan Kwaku Yeboah

Dan Kwaku Yeboah, a sports presenter with Peace FM in Accra, has defended his choice to travel abroad with “gari” and “shito,” popular Ghanaian food items made of cassava flakes and hot pepper sauce.

He argues that it is not uncommon for Ghanaians, including wealthy individuals, to bring these food items when traveling overseas.

He questions why people are mocking him for doing the same. Yeboah’s reaction comes after former Ghana Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, claimed to have helped many Ghanaian sports journalists, including Yeboah.

Nyantakyi shared an incident from a tournament in Australia in 2008, where he noticed Yeboah not joining them for dinner.

When asked, Yeboah explained that he had brought gari and shito from Ghana for his meal. Nyantakyi advised him to throw it away and join them for a proper meal.

While Nyantakyi expressed disappointment in the journalists who contributed to tarnishing his image, Yeboah holds no grudges and finds the situation humorous.

He sees no issue with bringing gari and shito on his travels and plans to continue doing so, even on private trips. Yeboah advised Nyantakyi to remain silent and be grateful for escaping punishment after the scandal.
