KNUST rusticated student to challenge school in court.
The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) after an emergency meeting held by the Disciplinary Committee this week has penalized four University students for their misconduct.
Mr. Rexford Joseph Bonney, who unlawfully erected ‘Odikro’ at Unity Hall, has been rusticated for two academic years, that is 2021/2022 and 2022/2023, according to a release copied to georgeweb.org.
Mr. Baffour Owusu Konadu, another student, has been rusticated for one academic year (2021/2022) for gross misconduct and bringing Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology’s name into discredit.
Mr. Patrick Dwamena Sekyere has been indefinitely suspended, according to the Disciplinary Committee, for extorting money from students with the promise of securing them accommodation at GUSSS and SRC hostels.
However, some students believe Mr. Rexford Joseph Bonney’s punishment was unjust. They consider that “Odikro’s” installation was not such a serious offense that he should be rusticated. Others argue that, this offense is never mentioned in the Student Guide given to students during matriculation and as such Mr. Rexford Joseph Bonney should take this on.
In a Facebook post seen by georgeweb.org, Mr. Rexford Joseph Bonney has acknowledged the statement, stating “Seen @KNUSTGH. Will humbly wait to receive an official letter to this effect. My parents as well. Thank you.
