“They served us expired food,” students claimed


On Tuesday, last week, Sekhukhune Times received a disturbing report alleging Waterberg Tvert College in Lebowakgomo of serving contaminated food to students in residence.

Victims who spoke in anonymity said four women in catering staff served meals with chicken meat that smells bad.

Due to an alleged rotten meat, some didn’t eat and other ate but later vomited, according to complaints.

For that reason, students went to the kitchen that evening to inspect if the cooked meat was healthy.

Unfortunely they were denied access by catering staff , students claimed. Local police were called to disperse students.

And police permitted students to inspect and found meat inside the broken fridge.

“Broken fridge was full of wors, chicken meat and mincemeat,” said the complaints.

Students said they questioned catering staff why did they cooked meat from broken fridge but no one answered and they wanted to open the case of attempted murder and negligence.

“The police advised us to report the matter to the health department first,” cited students.

The following day, students went to legislature in Lebowakgomo offices of health to report the matter and a woman by the name of Bridget came and assessed and promised give feedback after 7 days.

“This is a serious offense because cookers didn’t comply with health and safety food preparation regulations,” they emphasised.

What angered students the most is when catering staff wanted to temper the evidence by wanted to throw expired meat to the bushes.

Catering staff said they told management about non-working fridges but management decided to avoid their grievances.

Meanwhile the management said it was breaking news to their ears.

Food distributor said delivered food were healthy putting blame on catering staff for putting the meat in the broken fridge.

Health department in Lebowakgomo confirmed students made claim

Later all contaminated food were removed from the damaged fridge.
