Watch The Investigative Piece; ‘SHS Placement For Sale’ By The Fourth Estate

An investigative piece by ‘The Fourth Estate’, has uncovered a syndicate that executed a fraudulent Senior High School placement exercise.

The Fourth Estate is a public interest journalism project of the Media Foundation For West Africa (MFWA).

According to The Fourth Estate, the Minister of Education and the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service were the only ones given access and passwords to approve protocol placement into Category A senior high schools.

This was to curb fraud. But The Fourth Estate found evidence that placement into Category A schools happened through a network of intermediaries. The intermediaries included cleaners and security guards.

It also found evidence of how an investigation requested by the Director-General of GES into allegations of corruption in the placement system was suddenly halted by two state security agencies.

Here is the full investigative documentary by Adwoa Adobea-Owusu and Evans Aziamor-Mensah of The Fourth Estate.
