Some new teachers transferred to the Soda D/A Junior High School in the Affram Plains South District of the Eastern region are living in a state of terror.

The new teachers, who were transferred to the school to fill the vacuum created following the dismissal of 15 others, were welcomed on Friday with black magic at the entrance leading to the Staff Common Room.

The teachers were alarmed when they saw broken eggs and other items depicting ‘juju’ or black magic close to their office entrance, with an inscription indicating that five of them will die soon if they do not reject the posting.

The previous teachers of SODA D/A J.H.S which is located in Maame-Krobo were suspended over alleged indiscipline.

The 15 teachers were transferred after protesting against the appointment of a new headmaster for the School. According to the teachers, some of them are better qualified to head the school than the new headmaster who “has little knowledge in managing a school”.

The mass transfer of teachers in the School was met with strong opposition from the teachers, community and the Parents Teachers Association.

Several meetings by the stakeholders of the School and the District Director failed to thwart the transfer fiat, according to Starr News’ Eastern regional correspondent Kojo Ansah.

He said a final meeting with the community to put rest to the impasse is scheduled on Monday at the Chief’s Palace.
