Madam Gifty Pomaa, the headmistress of MalamKrom L/A Primary School in the Wenchi Municipality in the Bono Region, is claimed to have suspended classes due to a missing 2,000 GHC from her bungalow.
According to a report by Kumasi-based Angel FM, the Headmistress shut down the school after accusing certain kids of stealing her money.
On Monday, March 13, 2023, the incident occurred, and as of Monday, March 20, 2023, there was no active teaching or learning taking place.
Mr. Ankomah Kennedy, Chairman of the School Management Council (SMC), claims that the Headmistress made the choice on her own without engaging any other community members or stakeholders.
The head of the elementary department of the school, Madam Gifty Pomaa, also forbade those in charge of the school’s feeding program from preparing meals for the kids throughout the week and insisted that things could return to normal once she retrieves her money.
She apparently also threatened to deal with any teachers who disobeyed her ruling.
