GHS Djunang: Father vows to prosecute fake news propagators

The father of Junior Kamdem, a form 3 student at Government High School, GHS Djunang, in the Bafoussam III subdivision of the West Region, whose picture was circulated, alleging that he impregnated two of his mates, has threatened to file a complaint against the school authorities for defamation.

A picture of the 14-year-old and two female students of the same school has for some days now, been making rounds on social media handles, insinuating that the male student had impregnated the two other female students.

The information, according to the boy’s father, Talla Gabriel is fake; he threatened to drag the matter to court.

‘The child was asked to kneel before the disciplinary council because he had 26 hours of unjustified absences. I reached there and found two other children who were there for theft. One of the officials present at the spot took a picture and published it.’

According to him, his son was summoned to appear before the disciplinary council for cummulated absences’. Said Talla Gabriel on B
alafon Radio

‘ I will not let the name of my son be tarnished. It can go a long way to psychologically harm him’ He added.

As for the two Form 2 female students in the same picture, Talla Gabriel said they were also summoned before the disciplinary council but for a matter of theft.

As a result of the fake news propagated, Junior’s hypertensive mother reportedly went unconscious and was taken to a health facility for treatment.
