Two more teachers at KNUST SHS interdicted over death of student

Two teachers of the KNUST Senior High School have been asked to step aside pending investigations into the death of a final year student.


The two, Seth Owusu Ansah, a Senior Housemaster and Anthony Awotwe, a housemaster for Densu House, where the deceased was a resident.

The directive follows the interdiction of the school’s headmistressFelicia Asamoah Dankwaa, over the death of the said student.

A final year student lost his life on Tuesday following complaints of ill health – a suspected ulcer.

According to students, school authorities had neglected the deceased for hours, fearing he had contracted COVID-19.

Following the unfortunate incident, students went on a rampage in protest of the alleged “negligence by school authorities.”

The Ashanti Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has since constituted a committee to look into the matter, awaiting approval from the Director-General of the GES to make the committee official.
