komendaStudents of the Komenda College of Education in the Central Region took to the streets, Friday, to protest the introduction of unapproved fees by the school’s authorities.

The students do not understand why the authorities will slap a 30 cedi levy for the design of a school lawn at a time when they are already complaining about high fees.

On Friday, scores of students hit the streets in their red arm-bands and attire demanding the resignation of the Principal of the School, Comfort Korsah.

Joy News’ Central Region correspondent Richard Kwadwo Nyarko reported the angry students as saying there is open thievery in the kind of levies they have been asked to pay.

The students do not understand why they are paying ridiculously higher fees than other Colleges of Education in the country.

According to them,  the Osu College of Education is paying Ȼ646.00, Ola College of Education is paying Ȼ861.00, Holy Child College of Education is paying Ȼ796.00 whilst they are paying 1,218.00

The students claim the school authorities in most cases fail to use the monies for the purpose for which they were collected.

They swore not to pay the new fees describing them as open thievery.

Richard Kojo Nyarko said the school authorities are locked up in a meeting and are yet to comment on the matter.
