The Ghana Education Service has condemned the indefinite suspension of three alleged gay students of the Opoku Ware Senior High School after indulging in homosexuality.

Authorities of the school suspended the three boys indefinitely after a disciplinary committee established they were homosexuals, following a 'caught-in-the-act' report made against them by their colleagues.

But, speaking to Pulse.com.gh, the Public Relations Officer of GES, Jonathan Bettey said the indefinite suspension of the three is wrong.

According to him, students found in such act should only be given few days internal suspension.

"We don't encourage homosexuality in our schools. So if a headmaster finds any student in this act, we need to invetigate. If there is an iota of truth, then we need to call the culprit, we sit them down and take them through counseling. After counseling if they continue, then we take them through internal suspension.

"We are not encouraging indefinite suspension. We are encouraging internal suspension for some few days, less than a week," he said.

He added that the GES is yet to receive a report from the school, and was however hopeful that the problem will be solved at the regional or district level.
