It appears the University authorities of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology in Kumasi have bargained for more than they expected with their new policies of restricting and controlling the students who are considered mature in every sense of the word.

What was supposed to be a peaceful demonstration and a boycott of lectures by the students of the KNUST led by the school’s Student Representative Council (SRC) President, Kelvin Sah has turned into a full violent agitation.
