Why UG is trending for the second time in one week

Why UG is trending for the second time in one week

#Legonweek may be the best caption to summarize it; the country’s premiere institution of higher education; University of Ghana has been making all the headlines from Monday October 7 and this is why:

First, it was the ‘Gyampo, Butakor’ saga. Two lecturers of the university were implicated in a BBC Africa Eye Documentary that sought to put the spotlight on the subject of sex for grades in tertiary institutions in Africa.

Social media went crazy with various tweets on the issue on campus, Prof. Gyampo and Butakor and sexual harassment of ladies.

Whilst many were excited about the revelations, indicating how it brought to the fore the crux of the canker and how devastating it was for ladies even on other campuses, others were on the defense of Prof. Gyampo particularly, noting how the documentary barely faulted him seeing that the scenes were rather casual.

Terms like “Have you ever been kissed violently before?”, “I’ll grab you and kiss you here and by the time I release you, you’ll see all the shyness gone”, “formal, formal, formal, formal…you want to talk about work work, nothing else ‘esa bo dientse” did not fail to make news on social media.

Four days on, the issue is still trending on the news airwaves with debates and discussions as many try to digest the subject and tackle various angles to it and yet, Legon is high up the twitter trends again.

University of Ghana has issued a statement: they’ve interdicted Gyampo and Butakor pending an investigation into the claims. But this is Ghana, and if the utterances of the chairman of the Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee is anything to go by, we know that nothing will be done.

This time, the narrative is a bit different.

A video circulating on twitter captures a Legon student in one of the university’s halls, questioning her ‘cheating’ boyfriend and hitting him continuously with her slippers what is called in the local parlance, ‘Chalewote’.

Though suggestions are that it was acted, many have already hit social media to react to the issue. Hitting out at the lady for disrespecting a guy by hitting him in that manner. Some are also of the view that the guy acted ‘dull’ and should have stopped her.

What disputes the element of acting however is the fact that the lady in question has emerged to render an apology over her actions.

She said, “I was in a very dark place, this happened just yesterday so I’m shocked it has gone this far just in a short while. To be honest at the moment, I wasn’t thinking properly, I was very angry and the fact that he wasn’t even showing any remorse fueled that anger but I’m truly sorry for attacking him the way that I did, it wasn’t right no matter what he did. It wasn’t right for me to attack him because, in the video you can see that he didn’t hit me back or anything, I’m really sorry for that.”

Meanwhile, social media users, as expected are making fun of the situation and have taken on a challenge, the #chalewote challenge.

Let’s see some of the reactions on social media:
