The Headteacher of Kekeli Preparatory School in Aflao has been arrested for registering 62 foreign pupils to write the 2019 Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) as Ghanaian pupils.

The Municipal and District Chief Executive of Ketu South in the Volta Region, Elliot Agbenorwu, who caused the arrest of the headteacher, told the media that:

“Earlier, we had picked intelligence and the intelligence officers were working on it. We were informed that 62 students who schooled in Lome, Togo have been registered by Mr Mawuli, who is the proprietor and the owner of Kekeli International School, a private school in Aflao. He registered them as Ghanaian students without any cumulative records in the school and then it came to light that, indeed, these students were registered without any cumulative records and they registered as Ghanaians not as foreign students.

“And, so, we’ve handed the proprietor over to the police for further investigation. Upon my personal interrogation with him in the presence of the municipal director, he’s confirmed that, indeed, he registered these 62 students who are from Togo Faith Mission School and all this is a sabotage to government policy.”
