A team from the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES), have visited the family house of the late Mr George Somuah Bosompem, the teacher who was assaulted by six teens leading to his death in the Asiakwa community of the Eastern Region.
The team, which was led by Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the Minister of Education, included Professor Kwasi Opoku Amankwa, Director General of GES, and other dignitaries.
Dr Prempeh assured the family that the Ministry and the GES were working with the Regional/District Security Councils to ensure that the perpetrators face the full rigours of the law.
Dr Prempeh, who is also the Member of Parliament for Manhyia South said the Ministry and the GES were concerned about the safety of teachers and would do everything to protect them.
After commiserating with the bereaved family, the team had time to interact with the aggrieved teachers and encouraged them to join the GES/SIC Life Group.
Mr Nathan A. Adjei, the Headmaster of Salvation Army Basic School appealed to the teachers to return to the classroom and help the students preparing for the BECE.
Mr Adjei, who is also the Head of the Bosompem’s Family thanked the team for their visit, respect and attention showed the family.
The late Bosompem was beaten to death by a group of teenagers in the area for warning them to desist from defecating on the school compound.
So far, all the six teenagers have been remanded and would appear in court on May 26 for the committal trial.
