The Ghana Education Service (GES) has plunged vigorously on 10 of its staff for their inclusion in sexual wrongdoing, indecent relations and pilfering.
Most prominent is the scandalous “kitchen stool” headteacher of the Adumanu D/A Basic School in the Central Region, Mr Robert Seppey, who is among five other people who have had their arrangements ended for a sexual offence.
