- Some 23 students of KNUST have been suspended by the school for harassing female colleagues
- They included the PRO of Unity Hall, who reportedly led the students to engage in the act
YEN.com.gh has learnt that some "rowdy" students of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have been put on suspension by school officials for allegedly harassing some female colleagues.
According to media reports, the students, 23 in number, had reportedly hooted at some female students on campus.
Speaking with the media on the suspension, Mr. Nathaniel Arthur, the chairman of the school's disciplinary committee stated that hooting is prohibited on campus.
He told the campus radio station, Focus FM that hooting was thus considered a punishable act.
"In as much as hooting at ladies was overlooked in the Hall, it was not appropriate for residents of the halls to engage in the act", he stated.
It has also been revealed that the hooting students were led by the Public Relations Officer of Unity Hall, Dominic Donkor.
Dominic Donkor reportedly gathered some freshers who were affiliated to Unity Hall and charged them to hoot at the female student.
Mr. Nathaniel Arthur also advised that other students took cue from the punishment leveled on the 23 offenders and desist from any rowdy behaviour on campus.
"This is uncalled for and discriminatory all students should learn to quit from it", the chairman pointed out.
