Although he did not make the connection to issues at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), musician, Shatta Wale, has spoken of the need for leaders to not abandon the cries of the youth.
The award-wining artiste hinted in a tweet on Monday that abandoning the youth only paves the way for young people to "rise."
It is not clear what he meant by that although an inference could easily be made to people taking things into their own hands when the legitimate means are not catered to.
Shatta Wale's comments come in the wake of violence on the campus of KNUST in Kumasi. A planned student demonstration went chaotic after school authorities called in the police and military.
YEN.com.gh sighted a video of how some angry students of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) set the car of the school's Dean of Students on fire in Monday's demonstrations.
The video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram page Dailycelebritiesnews.com, saw the car already burning with the windscreen vandalized.
Members of the public as well as influential Ghanaians have called for peace to reign.
On Monday evening, actress and media personality, Joselyn Dumas, slammed security officials of the school for brutalizing the students. She then called for students to show restraint.
