School prefect suspended for sexually harassing female students in Wa

The Authorities of Wa Secondary and Technical School have suspended the Senior Prefect of the School for allegedly hosting and sexually harassing girls in his cubicle.

The Senior prefect, whose name was given as Wilfred Kahuntana, has since been asked to step aside as senior prefect of the school.

A section of the student’s population is, however, unsatisfied with the development and have threatened a demonstration to express their displeasure.

According to some of these students who spoke to Atinka Fm’s Upper West regional correspondent, the allegations levelled against the Senior Prefect are false.

The students narrated that the senior prefect was with a friend and two girls in his cubicle. They noted that the school’s administration was notified and they concluded that the prefect was sexually harassing these girls. This led to the suspension of the senior perfect.

The students have reportedly written threatening messages on the walls of the school. Some have been cleared by the senior house master of the school to avert public and media attention.

Several meetings are being held in the school to resolve the issue according to the students.

Meanwhile management of Wa Sec/Tech declined to speak on the matter when they were contacted.
