He made the revelation during a seminar by the Ghana Education Service’ Counselling and Guidance Centre at Kwadaso in the Ashanti Region to equip school-based counsellors on the need to offer psychosocial support to school kids.

Seven other girls have also been impregnated by their close relatives in the municipality.

The situation, according to the GES, will have a serious physiological effect on the girls when schools resume full operations.

Dr Kyeremeh said the COVID-19 restrictions exposed the children to all forms of abuse which are unusual and has led to psychological effects among the children.

Stephen Asare Brew, the Kwadaso Municipal Educational Coordinator of the Counsellor and Guidance unit of GES, also stated that these abuses have affected the children physiologically leading to suicide among some of them.

He added that the children, who have been exposed to some of these abuses and are suffering psychologically, need immediate counselling to rescue them.

Mr Brew said sexual abuse by teachers is against the code of ethics of GES staff, adding that GES is committed to punishing any teacher who is involved in the act.

He explained that several students, who are victims of teacher-student sexual abuse, fail to report to the proper authorities making it difficult to issue sanctions to the teachers.

Sam Korankye Ankrah Prays for Bobbie Ansah and Thompson Mensah

 The Founder and General Overseer of the Royalhouse Chapel International, Apostle General, Most Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah, has kicked against the harassment of journalists by the security agencies in the country.

Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah

“We do not support the harassment of journalists who are doing their work to speak truth to power and call power to account,” he said during the Sunday church service on the 13th of February.
He made the pronouncement when  Kwabena Bobbie Ansah of Accra Fm and Thompson Mensah the Executive Director of the Alliance for Social Equity and  Public Accountability (ASEPA), who were recently arrested for false news publication and later released, joined the church to thank the Lord.
“In Royalhouse Chapel you have faithful partners in the liberty of journalism and reportage in Ghana,” he told the duo.
He said it is the responsibility of all to hold those in power accountable for their actions and inactions. “When we vote for them, we will call them to accountability, they would have to account for the power vested in them and the promises that they make for which we elected them. It is not going to be an assignment of journalists and the courts only but of every citizen of this nation,” he said.
Adding his voice to the several calls for the use of the courts for redress in matters such as false news publication, the Apostle General said the police investigations were unnecessary.
He also used the opportunity to call for forgiveness for the two saying, “let us learn to forgive those who are always on the microphone. The one who goes to the stream to fetch water is the one who gets wet. Within the spur of the moment, we say things that we should not say, but when you are emotionally charged, it happens.”
He further noted that journalists sometimes find themselves in trouble for things they say and write but that should not be used to condemn the profession in its entirety, adding, “It is the hazards of the work. We should learn to forgive and tolerate them and look at the work that they do for the common good of society and not the small mistakes that they commit.”
On that note the Most Rev. Korankye Ankrah apologised on their behalf to anyone who had been offended by their reportage and prayed for the duo.
