Kwaku Boahen, a Deputy National Communications Officer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has appealed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his ‘’spiritual father’’ Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, General Overseer of the Glorious Word Revival Ministries, to confess to Ghanaians the reason behind the death of students at KUMACA and other senior high schools.
Although it has been established that the deceased students at the Kumasi Academy died as a result of the died of Influenza Type A popularly referred to as Swine Flu, Kwaku Boahen says the rituals that saw the current president win the elections, should be blamed for the incidents occurring in the school and other schools.
Health Minister Kwaku Agyemang Manu has said 12 out of the 19 cases sent to the Noguchi Memorial Institute has tested positive for the virus.
Providing more details, the Minister said the Influenza type A has the H1N1 Pandemic strain.
At least 44 Kumasi Academy students were rushed to various hospitals in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region in what was initially suspected to be an outbreak of meningitis.
The students complained of "fever-like conditions" at the school's clinic.
Tests however proved negative for meningitis with health officials contemplating what exactly may have caused the deaths of four students in the last seven days.
However, Kwaku Boahen, in an interview with Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.Fm, asked Rev. Bempah to direct Nana Addo to blow the horn he gave him some few months ago so the multiple deaths in our schools will stop.
He said the pastors surrounding Nana Addo are aware that the issue is spiritual and so the kind of spiritual attack should be brought to an end. Rev. Bempah told Nana Addo that the horn he presented to him will fight against any spiritual attacks and so he should direct Nana Addo to horn it so the deaths will stop.
