With adherents expected to fast between dawn and dusk in a mood of introspection, communal prayer and reading of the Quran, the physical demands of the taxing period often take a toll, necessitating the importance of personal care and proper nourishment during meal times.
Consequently, findings indicate that Konga has been identified as the preferred source for food items, groceries, beverages/refreshments and other essentials for the Ramadan season.
