Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Sex scandal at Yaa Asantewaa Girls' Secondary School


A FIVE-Member Presidential Committee, tasked with the responsibility of unraveling the circumstance in which two students of the Yaa Asantewaa Girls Senior High School at Tanoso near Kumasi, in January this year fell prey to the sexcapades of two sons of the Headmistress of the school, Mrs. Elizabeth Malik Jabir, has completed its findings, and is putting the report together for submission any time soon.

The Committee is comprised of a representative each from the Ghana Education Service Council (Chairman), Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), Internal Audit of GES, Ghana National Association of Teachers, and Conference of District Directors of Education.

The probe follows a petition on June 3, this year by a section of the teaching staff, who leveled various allegations against the Headmistress, after three other Disciplinary Committees had failed to fully address the concerns raised.

The signatories included Nana Adansi-Pipim, Chairman of the Teachers' Welfare Association, Messrs Mark Anthony Ankudey, P. K. Agyekum, Effa Johnson, George Mensah (tutors), and Mrs. Comfort Boama-Djan, Head of English/Twi Department, and Ms Abena Darkwa, a Housemistress. Among the concerns and the immediate cause of the probe, was the allegation of a sex scandal involving two final year students of the school, (names withheld), and two sons of the Headmistress late last January, while she was away in Accra for a moderation meeting at the West African Exams Council (WAEC).

The two girls were found to have been 'camped' by the two sons in a bedroom in the Headmistress' residence on January 29, 2009.
