You do not need NCAA teams to have problems
The big story recently at the University of Ghana is the alleged stripping and molestation of a girl accused of stealing by a group of male students at one of the dorms here in Legon. It made the front page of the papers last Saturday. At the weekly history seminar on Wednesday all the graduate students were heatedly discussing the issue. But, the women graduate students seemed more passionate about it. I am not sure of all the details, evidently there is a video of the event on the Internet that I have not watched nor do I intend to watch it. However, the allegations against the male students should be taken seriously and investigated by the proper authorities. The University administration has publicly said that they are taking appropriate action regarding the incident. This is the kind of story one hears a lot about in the US, but I had honestly expected better of the students in Ghana.
