Students lament over animalistic treatments in Komenda Sec. Tech.
The students have disclosed that they are treated like animals when they err. The students opened up on the kind of inhuman treatments they receive at the hands of school authorities after housemistress Miss Ama Sika gave a female student 40 strokes of cane for leaving campus without permission.
The punishment has left the student, Mensah Sarafina, with sores on her buttocks after the lashes.
The assistant headmistress to whom the incident was reported took no proactive steps and remained quiet over the matter.
Students of the school reported the ordeal they go through, including the recent 40 lashes to Kasapa FM’s Yaw Boagyan off-record. They added that all phones owned by final year students have been ceased to prevent them from reporting cases of maltreatment to their parents.
They have vowed to lodge complaints until she is removed from the institution by the Ghana Education Service so that the animalistic treatments in Komenda Sec. Tech. the regime will end.
Mensah Sarafina had gone home with her mate on Sunday, June 20 to take food since she was a border.
The victim told Kasapa FM’s Yaw Boagyan that on Monday evening around 4 pm the Housemistress called her and her friend and ordered them to kneel down, which they obliged.
Boagyan reports that after kneeling down, the housemistress gave Sarafina forty strokes on her buttocks causing blood to clot in that area of her body.
She reportedly showed what had happened to her to the housemistress who subsequently told her to wait till the next day to go to the infirmary for treatment.
She however refused to go to the infirmary and rather went to the hospital.
Efforts to reach the headmistress have proven futile.
The incident has been reported to DOVVSU for investigation
