Vandals, Katanga, Conti and Casley Hayford Hall To Meet Over KNUST Saga
The fate of the two male halls in KNUST, University hall (Katanga) and Unity hall (Conti) will be determined in just a month’s time. According to the management of the university, the population of female students to males on campus is too small in number. This is a cause for worry as many female students living off campus face the risk of rape, theft, and other dangers.
Thus, in an attempt to address this issue, the management of the school has decided to increase the number of female students by converting the two traditional male halls, Katanga hall and Continental hall, into mix halls.
The conversion would mean a lot of things, and would even change the face of the school as these two halls are popular for who they are and how they impact onto society.
Since the news broke out, students have tried with all effort to sabotage this decision. Some residents of continental hall have even threatened to molest the female students who will make attempt to come there. They have sent out strong warnings to parents at home not to even dare allow their daughters to come to Conti.
Whether the management of the school will proceed to its plan or not will be decided by 27th August, 2018, when KNUST resumes school.
However, information reaching us is that, Casley Hayford and Commonwealth halls have decided to hold a meeting with its sister halls, Katanga hall and Continental hall, about the ongoing issue. The meeting will take place today at the conference room of Accra Technical University, the then Accra Polytechnic at 10am.
Our ears are on ground and we will do well to bring you any further development.
Do you think Katanga and Conti halls should be converted to mix halls to make room for female students on campus?
