Tweneboah Koduah SHS headmaster under investigation over alleged sexual misconduct

The headmaster of the Tweneboah Koduah Senior High School in the Ashanti Region, has been interdicted following allegations of sexual misconduct.

Rev. Francis Badu Agyare is alleged to be having sexual affairs with female students of the school.

The Education Directorate in the Kumawu District in a letter dated April 12, 2018, asked the headmaster to step down as it institutes investigations into the allegations against him.

Rev Agyare’s interdiction came after some teachers petitioned the Kumawu Traditional Council about his conduct.

The teachers had earlier threatened a sit-down strike if immediate actions were not taken against the headmaster.

District Chief Executive of the area, Samuel Osei Agyekum, told Joy News’ Matilda Wemegah that Rev Agyare has also been accused of abuse of power.

“There was also an allegation that he has no respect for the teachers,” Mr Agyekum said.

He said some of the girls who were allegedly involved with the headmaster, have been questioned and a report will be released on the findings.
