Controversy is currently raging on at the Kofi Agyei Senior High School in the Kwabre district of the Ashanti region, following the sudden death of the headmaster of the school.

Nyame Kwarteng, the headmaster of the school, sadly passed away on Friday evening around 9.00pm at the Tafo government hospital, minutes after he had been rushed to the health facility for urgent treatment.

The 55-year-old deceased had complained of dizziness, moments after he had allegedly taken a cup of tea at a board meeting held at the school on that fateful day and was subsequently rushed to the hospital for treatment.

The departed headmaster, who left behind a wife who is an administrative assistant at SIMMS Senior High School and four children, according to sources, was foaming profusely from the mouth when he was rushed to the Tafo government hospital.

Information gathered indicates that the man who was held in high esteem by parents, guardians and students of the school for his sense of discipline kicked the bucket before arriving at the hospital for treatment.

The cause of his death was not immediately established as the result of the post mortem examination was not yet out at the time of going to press on Sunday but speculations were rife that the late headmaster might have been poisoned by his adversaries.

According to close associates and students of the school who spoke to DAILY GUIDE on anonymity, the deceased looked hale and hearty on Friday when he attended the board meeting and that he suddenly fell sick after allegedly taking that cup of tea.

Deep-throat sources told the paper that the deceased became an instant enemy of most of the workers at the school, especially the teachers, because of a recent massive shake-up exercise he conducted which witnessed the transfer of many teachers.

When Daily Guide visited the school on Sunday afternoon, academic, as well as extra curricular activities had virtually come to a halt as students mourned their departed headmaster.

Red flags were hoisted at the entrance, as well as other areas of the school, whereas the students and workers were seen wearing red armbands to signify their pain over the demise of Mr. Nyame, their headmaster.

Some of the students who spoke to our reporter explained that they were indeed saddened by the death of their headmaster, not only because of his fatherly love, but his sense of commitment which saw massive infrastructural development since he became headmaster about two years ago.

Attempts to speak to authorities of the school proved futile, with officials citing bureaucracy.
