The Kumasi Technical University (KsTU) has deleted a news publication on its website, which announced that three first-year engineering students have moulded coal pots.
Graphic.com.gh reported that the university, in the publication dated August 11, 2023, revealed that the students came up with the innovation as part of their academic project.
After news of what the students did went viral on social media on Wednesday, November 8, the publication was pulled down.
Photos of the first-year automotive engineering students posing with the coal pots stirred reactions, with people wondering why a university would encourage the production of coal pots knowing the adverse effect it would eventually have on the climate.
One of the students, Gladys Cobbinah, during a small ceremony to showcase what she and her mates had done thanked the University's Engineering Department for supporting them in transforming an idea into a tangible invention.
