KNUST Single Hall Change- Lecturers Attack Each Other Verbally

KNUST-NEWS-ENTRANCE-620x330

A lecturer with the Kumasi Technical University and alumnus of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Mr. Collins Kankam-Kwarteng has attacked Prof. Charles Marfo for describing Katanga and Conti Halls of KNUST as harbouring primitive traditions. “Prof. Charles Marfo has weak understanding of traditions and how it contributes to the development of people and society”, the lecturer and a former student of Katanga fumed.

Replying to a Facebook post by Prof Charles Marfo that alumni of the institution are adamant to converting two halls into mixed halls, Kankam-Kwarteng described the comment as “insulting, childish and discriminatory which do not befit a professorial commentary.” Collins Kankam-Kwarteng in an interview with journalists hinted also hinted that more plans by students, alumni and associates of Katanga Hall are underway to prevent authorities of the University from converting the two halls into mixed halls. The former Dean of faculty of Social Sciences, Prof. Charles Marfo has called the bluff of the alumni of the popular males’ halls of the university on their adamant stance against converting the two halls into mixed halls.

“Senior Staff against Intimidation and Destruction (SAID) at KNUST … Yep!! Who says we shouldn’t give equal opportunities to our females in the 21st century and beyond in the name of some primitive traditions? Indeed, why should we entertain any tradition at all besides what is academic in a first-class academic institution like KNUST? SAID is alert and poised to see to the protection of our females in any of the halls they’ll be assigned to…Parents, be rest assured!! Right-thinking friends will concur!’ He posted on his facebook wall.

However, his colleague lecturer wants him to render an apology to both present and past students who happens to be affiliated to the hall.
