The authorities of the Wenchi Methodist Senior High School (SHS) have revealed that the Kintampo Waterfalls was not part of the itinerary of students who had embarked on an excursion.

“The arrangement was for them to travel to the Mole National Park in the Northern Region and were expected back on campus on Sunday evening to enable them attend classes on Monday”, a senior staff member told mynewsgh.com.

According to the Headmaster of the School, he is yet to be briefed on why those leading the excursion made up 63 people including a driver and some teachers decided to veer off the arranged plans which resulted in the death of the students.

Meanwhile, the current death toll officially stands at 18 out of the 63 persons who were at the scene of the disaster.

Seven (7) persons with severe injuries are currently at the general ward of the Kintampo Government Hospital while 11 with minor injuries have been admitted at other wards injured.

Students of the University of National Resources in Sunyani who were also on excursion including some residents of Kintampo and some tourists were all affected.

As at press time, relations were trooping into the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman and the Kintampo Government Hospital to identify the bodies of their deceased relations.

Of what relevance was the visit to the Mole Park or Kintampo to the Academic work of these students? Sometimes, authorities in SHS takes silly decisions which impacts negatively on the lives of our brothers and sisters in SHS. GES should sit up to effectively monitor the activities of these schools.

The headmaster is not trying to exempt himself but rather want to know why the planned route was changed. Maybe those in authority deliberately veered from the actual route for a reason.
