Headteacher In Saboba Drowning’s Case Adjourned

The case of Emmanuel Chingya, the Headmaster of St. Charles Lwanga Junior High School in Saboba, has been adjourned by the Tamale District Court until December 13, 2021.

On November 12, the headmaster is said to have sent thirty-one students to work on his farm, but the canoe they were sailing in capsized, killing nine of them.

Mr. Emmanuel Chingya was charged with manslaughter after the incident.

The prosecution requested extra time in court yesterday, Monday, November 29, 2021, to do further investigations into the case.

His Lordship Amadu Issifu, the judge who presided over the case, approved the motion and adjourned the hearing.

Mr. Chingya has been pardoned by the families of the nine JHS students who died.

Their request came after the Ghana Education Service (GES) announced the headteacher’s expulsion.

In a letter, GES stated that the headteacher would be detained until the police made a final decision on the case.
