The embattled assistant headmaster of the Kumasi High School, George Amponsah-Duodu, has claimed through his lawyers that Ghana Education Service (GES) authorities did not give him a fair hearing before his suspension.
Amponsah-Duodu is under investigation for allegedly sleeping with some student(s) in the school. The GES suspended him to allow time and opportunity for them to go through the merits of the case.
The assistant headmaster has however sued the GES, and the headmaster of the school, Bernard Hall Baidoo.
He alleged that the sued entities failed to give him a fair hearing during the investigation process, making his suspension one without basis.
Last month, four students of the all-male school leveled allegations against the assistant headmaster.
After preliminary investigations, Mr. Amponsah-Duodu was subsequently suspended by the Ashanti Regional Education Directorate over the allegations to allow a full-scale probe to be conducted into the matter without any interference.
The Ghana Education Service last month, sacked 10 teachers under their watch for various offenses including sexual misconduct and stealing in their respective schools.
Six of the teachers were found guilty of sexual misconduct while four others were found guilty of stealing. One other was found guilty of defilement by an investigative committee set up by the Education Service and has been convicted by a court.
