The company which makes alcoholic drinks like Joy Dadi Bitters, herbal creams and medicated soap with herbal base, offers jobs for over 300 residents of the farming communities between Koforidua and Suhum
in the Eastern Region.
I discovered that the drivers liked to do this "free-wheeling" to preserve petrol, so that whenever they went to fill up at the CR transport station at Suhum
they could siphon an extra 4 gallons into a jerry can, and flog it secretly to drivers with whom they had an "arrangement".
My father travelled a lot to buy supplies for his shop, and so he knew almost every driver who plied the routes between Suhum
and Koforidua as well as Nsawam and Kumase, One of his best friends was a driver who lived at Kyebi and whom we kids called "Papa 'Sei" (for Osei).
Most recently, the CSR move of the company has benefited Suhum
Technical, which is celebrating its 50th Anniversary, with a package of GHAo 5,000.
