Cattle Invasion Affecting Academic Work In Schools At Wenchi
Academic work at the SDA Basic Cluster of Schools in the Wenchi in the Bono Region, are usually interrupted, following the constant invasion of the school premises by stray cattle. The stray animals roam about the school compound, in the morning and afternoon when classes are in session and Some of the animals often even go to extent of majestically walking and defecating on the
veranda of the school. In an interview with an Assembly Member for the Ahenfie Electoral Area in the Wenchi Municipality, Honourable Kassim Mohammed, said the presence of the animals in the school compound also causes fear and panic among the pupils. What if one of the cows had knocked down a student in the stampede he bemoaned. Mr. Kassim Mohammed added that the panic caused is even enough to traumatize a kid. He
then appealed to the Wenchi Municipal Assembly to ensure that animals in the city are caged to help avert a looming disaster. Mr. Kassim Mohammed appealed to the Wenchi Municipal Chief Executive, Prince Kwakye Afiriyie, the Member of Parliament, Alhaji Seidu Haruna, the Wenchi Municipal Directorate of Ghana Education Service, and also benevolent individuals to come to the aid of the school by fencing it to help avert a looming disaster.
