July. 08, 2020
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has interdicted the headmistress of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Senior High School (KNUST SHS), Ms Felicia Asamoah Dankwaa after the death of a student at her school on Tuesday, 7 July 2020.
Ms Dankwaa has been accused of negligence by her students.
A statement from the Ghana Education Service (GES) said she has been directed to step aside for the Regional Director of Education in the Ashanti Region to take over her duties while the GES probes the circumstances that led the death of the final year student.
Meanwhile, calm has returned to the school after the students demonstrated on Wednesday morning.
According to the students, their deceased colleague, who is believed to have had an ulcer, fell ill and was not attended to adequately by the school authorities for multiple hours.
They believe the authorities feared he had contracted coronavirus and left him unattended to until he died.
