The Ministry of Education has directed authorities of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to rescind its decision of turning all male Katanga hall into a mixed one.

The decision, comes on the back of simmering tension on KNUST campus over the conversion of some traditionally single-sex halls into mixed ones.

The sector Minister, Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh in a letter directed to the Chairman of the University Council indicated that “the move is to preserve a peaceful and conducive environment for academic work and cordial relationship in the University”.

The letter further said “whilst the governing council reserve the right to take decisions they deem fit; it is important that some consideration is given to other views on the conversion policy of converting Katanga hall into a mixed hall.

He added “i therefore wish to reiterate the position of government on this matter that katanga Hall remain a male hall of residence as prevailing in other sister universities eg. Commonwealth hall in UG, Casely-Hayford hall in UCC”, he added.

Radjtv News will keenly follow development at KNUST and update you as and when it happens.
