KUHIS Assistant Head Summoned Over Sodomising Allegations

The Ashanti Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has summoned an Assistant Headmaster of the Kumasi High School (KUHIS), Mr George Amponsah-Duodu, to appear before its disciplinary committee over allegations of sodomising a student.

In a letter dated November 20, 2018 and signed by the Head of the Legal Unit of the Directorate, Reverend Father B. Obeng Larbi, the GES directed Mr Amponsah-Duodu to appear before the disciplinary committee on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.

“You are to respond in writing and forward your response to the Regional Director within five days, stating any grounds upon which you wish to rely to be exonerated from the charge,’’ the letter stated. The summon was in accordance with Section 27 (1) of the Code of Professional Conduct for Teachers of the GES, which frowns upon sexual misconduct.

But in a response dated November 22, 2018, and signed by his lawyer, Mr Gary Nimako Marfo, the assistant headmaster has vehemently denied the allegations levelled against him.
“We want to state unequivocally and without any fear of contradiction that our client vehemently denies the allegations of any form of sexual misconduct with the student (name withheld),” counsel stated.

The GES in the letter said there had been numerous reports of alleged homosexual activities in KUHIS, an all-male school, a situation which made the headmaster of the school to set up a five-member committee to investigate the alleged activities.
