Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Several unemployed graduate teachers have embarked on a demonstration at the premises of the ministry of education.
On Monday, December 2, 2019, they gathered at the place to voice out their grievances with respect to their inability to secure employment.
One of them declared that they may have no option than to engage in armed robbery if the government fails to provide a solution before the year 2019 comes to an end.
The teachers revealed that the education ministry has failed to fulfill its promise of dealing with their issues.
For that reason, they went on, they will sleep at the ministry till their demands are met.
YEN.com.gh understands that the teachers have been at home and waiting for postings for two years now.
Per a report by Ghanaweb, nothing has changed and the ministry appears to be unconcerned about their plight.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has however announced that it has started posting teachers who completed their education at colleges of education in the year 2018.
In other news, Belinda Bennett, who traces her roots to a small island known as St. Helena, which lies in the South Atlantic Ocean between South America and South Africa, has been recognized as the first Black female ship captain.
According to her, she was in the water right from childhood and she loved the ocean. Bennett added that the only way off the island was by ship.
The captain went on to say that she took the job on the RMS St. Helena, the ship that supported the island when she was 17 years.
This marked the beginning of her adventures even though she had a rough start when she began training as a cadet.
Per a report by forbes.com, Bennett revealed that the chief officers with whom she trained made her work harder than the other trainees as she was the only woman among the male trainees.
