It has been announced by The Ghana Education Service to all teachers that flogging or any form of capital punishment for all Ghanaian Students in Junior high and senior high schools should be stopped. But, it seems some Ghanaian teachers listen to it with deaf ears. This morning, on Onua TV morning news, Mary Amoako, a final year student of Jachie Pramso Senior High school in the Bosomtwe District of the Ashanti region has been flogged mercilessly by her school headmaster which goes against the GES order to teachers. Speaking to Onua TV this morning, Mary said his male colleague whom the headteacher first punished, asked her for her jacket. After the headmaster ordered the boy to remove his school uniform and singlet to look half-naked in the school, he sought help from mary.
According to Mary, the headteacher later saw the boy going to the dormitory wearing a jacket, and when he found out that it was the lady who gave the jacket to him, he extended the punishment to her and gave her several strokes of canes on her back which resulted in serious bruises.
The family of Mary has vowed to take the case up and make sure the headmaster will be sued and face the consequences of what he has done to their daughter.
