The Anglican priest who kissed three female students of the St Monica’s College of Education in Mampong, in the Ashanti Region, Rev. Fr Baltharzzar Obeng Larbi, has apologized for his conduct.

He admits he was wrong and should have acted differently. He pleads for forgiveness from all those affected by his acts.

“I sincerely apologise to my Archbishop, the entirety of the Anglican Communion, the College, the affected students and their families, and the generality of the public”, he said in a statement.

Mr Larbi has however explained how the “unfortunate incident” happened and why he kissed the three female students.

According to him, it was supposed to be an act of appreciation to students who distinguished themselves.  He however added that an attempt to add a “human face” to the appreciation resulted in the incident which he is sorry for.

“The three students seen in the video performed extraordinarily well and were therefore called to be appreciated by the Chaplain. An attempt to add a human touch resulted in the scene in the video.”
