A Kumasi High Court has struck out an injunction application case seeking to restrain the management of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), from converting two male halls of residence of the University into a mixed one.

Alumni of the Continental, Unity and University, otherwise Katanga Halls, filed an injunction application against the conversion of the halls.

Current students and alumni of Continental and Katanga Halls have been protesting the decision by management to convert the halls from all-male halls to unisex halls.

Students and alumni from both halls had massed up at the court premises to witness the hearing of the case. This drew a heavy police presence at the premises of the court.

Presiding Judge, Justice Samuel Obeng Diawuo, in his ruling noted that the applications came after the University had allocated accommodation to students who had admissions.

The Judge also explained that granting the request by the plaintiffs will cause inconvenience for fresh students who had already secured accommodation at the University.

Lead counsel of the Katanga Hall, Stephen Asante Bekoe addressing journalists after the ruling, disagreed with the court’s explanations as reasons for quashing the case.

He hinted that they will proceed to the Supreme Court for a proper interpretation of the matter.
