Have you ever wondered how female students of the University Hall otherwise known as the Katanga of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science Technology (KNUST) are cohabitating with their male counterparts after the hall was converted? has intercepted a video of both males and females of the hitherto all-male hall dancing their hearts out in the hall to the delight of other hall mates.

In the less than a minute video, the ladies who news reports suggested were scared they could be sexually harassed by the male counterparts if they agreed to be admitted into hall are seen making some elegant dance moves to the admiration and cheers of onlookers.

The once upon a time no-go area for the female students is gradually becoming a haven for them as they feel appear to feel comfortable and mingling with the male students as they promised.

Upon their admission a month ago, the new ladies who were allocated to University Hall or Katanga vowed to continue the tradition that has made Katanga what it is.

According to them at the induction ceremony covered by, they are willing to embrace the tradition by giving it a feminine touch.

Speaking to journalists who gathered to observe proceedings, some of the ladies expressed delight about being pioneers of the mixed halls and will make the best out of the opportunity.


Fresh female students in August last month were admitted into Unity Hall [Conti] and University Hall otherwise known as Katanga Hall on Campus of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) for the first time.

Alumni of both halls protested against the conversion of their Halls but their resistance have been unsuccessful.

They had earlier petitioned the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II who is also Chancellor of the institution and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to help their fight against authorities.

The alumni did all they could as they strengthened the fight with a massive demonstration in the capital of the Ashanti Region but authorities remained adamant and have since started admitting female students.

The issue has since generated a heated argument between management of KNUST and Alumni of both Halls leading to armed military personnel being deployed on campus to keep the situation under wraps.
