The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has personally delivered GHC5,000 cash reward to the security man of Ghana Senior High School (GHANASS), in Koforidua after blowing the cover of the matron.
The senior matron of the school, Madam Comfort Oduro Bruce, has been arrested by Koforidua regional police command for allegedly stealing foodstuff meant for ‘Free SHS’ students.
News of the senior matron of GHANASS went viral after she was allegedly caught by the chief security of the school Kofi Kanjaga, ‘smuggling’ the food items.
The security officer who exposed the rot said the matron and one Alfred, a driver, were caught transporting the foodstuff in a GES vehicle, with registration number, GN 6717-15.
Mr Kanjaga added that he quickly called the attention of the headmaster and also wrote a report to him that same night, but he the [headmaster] failed to stop the matron.
The security man maintained that the matron, who was transferred from Krobo-Odumase Girls’ SHS to GHANASS last year, had been causing food shortage to the school, making things difficult to run the Free SHS programme.
The damning revelation sparked huge outrage after one of the matron’s staff, Appiah, later also confirmed the alleged criminal rot on Accra-based Oman FM.
Meanwhile, the Matron and the driver has since been arraigned before a Koforidua Circuit Court and granted bail.
