Some residents in the Tafo Ahenbronum, a suburb of Kumasi in the Old Tafo municipality have turned the Old Tafo M/A Basic School into a palladium of sex and the smoking of substances suspected to be Indian hemp (wee).
According to the teachers in the school, there is no security in the school, as there is no fence walls, and also most of the walls of the classrooms were half constructed, thereby allowing social miscreants to use them after school hours.
The teachers said the invaders do not only smoke illigal substances, but also defecate on the campus and in one instance, someone defecated on the valanders of the school building.
They further added that these invaders had not only desecrated the place, but also robbed the school children of their little money given to them by their parents.
According to them, apart from this criminal act, the school also lack furniture which has compelled the children to sit in pairs instead of one child to one desk.
The lower primary pupils take instruction under a fragile shed, with worn out roofing sheets with holes in them.
The school, one of the teachers said, does not have toilet and water supply so children have to leave the school compound and go to the near by public toilet to pay before they allowed to use the toilet which sometimes compelled the children to ease themselves.
Meanwhile some of the residents has complained about the deplorable roads in the community which makes it difficult for them to send sick person to hospital especially pregnant woman.
