Master Kevin Kofi Moses, a first year student of Achimota Senior High School who died in what has been believed to be sheer negligence from the school’s authorities by his mother, was laid to rest at the Osu Cemetery on Saturday, December 17.
The story, which was first carried by 3news.com on December 12, suggested that Master Moses died due to the negligence of a Housemaster and staff at Achimota Hospital.
His mother Sonia Ansong has called for the immediate closure of the institution as she believes their negligence led to the death of her son.
Kevin died on Sunday, December 4 at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra after being transferred from the Achimota Hospital, where he was admitted and was being treated for an undisclosed illness.
In an earlier interview with 3news.com, Mrs Ansong said Kevin had earlier in the week before his demise called and asked to be taken to the hospital because he felt unwell but was refused permission to leave school by his housemaster.
A very tearful Mrs. Ansong said she only wants justice for her son and insisted on the closure of the school whiles investigations are conducted.
“Kevin was my only child and I have nobody to talk to at the moment because he is no more,” she said.
“I feel lost and honestly do not know what to do with myself as it has always been my wish to see my son complete his education and achieve his future dream of becoming a computer scientist just as his father.”
According to her, she will not leave the issue to rest and has vowed to let justice prevail.
“Justice is all I want and I will make sure I get to the bottom of this so my son can rest peacefully.”
The school has since set up a committee to investigate the death.
