An article sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanaian news website, mynewsgh.com has alleged that the twin sons of embattled TV icon, Afia Schwarzenegger were not placed in their first choice schools after sitting for the last Basic Education Certificate Examinations.
The website alleged that sons of self-acclaimed queen of Ghana comedy, John Irvin Heerdegen Geiling and James Ian Heerdegen Geiling reportedly had aggregate 20 and 29 respectively in their B.E.C.E examinations.
The results therefore was not enough to secure the first choice schools of the twins. It is reported that Afia Schwarzenegger went to the Ministry of Education to ensure that her sons were placed.
It is believed that she went to appeal to the Minister of Education to get her children to benefit from the NPP’s flagship Free SHS.
The website, speaking on authority indicated that the sons of the TV Show Host and actress had been placed in the Kumasi Senior High School as at yesterday, September 13.
The website indicated that Afia Schwar beseeched the minister to help her place her sons. It is purported that she indicated that she had used the last minute option due to some leaked videos of her last week which had caused her some psychological trauma.
The twins, John Irvin Heerdegen Geiling and James Ian Heerdegen Geiling are the eldest sons of the actress and they are followed by a little sister known as Pena.
Other celebrities who have had their wards enjoying the Free SHS program include Mzbel. Some public figures including actors Agya Koo, Van Vicker and Nigeria’s Hank Enuku have also come out to throw their weight behind the free education program.
