Spread the love

3 students have been admitted at the KNUST Hospital after residents of the University Hall (Katanga) and Unity Hall (Conti) clashed Thursday night.

The clashes which resulted in vandalism occurred after residents of Katanga, with their affiliates from the University of Cape Coast, Casely-Hayford Hall (Casford) breached a convention after crossing the ‘Peace Junction’ during the Zulu procession of the University Hall.

Following several clashes between the two Halls over the years, a treaty was signed by the two Halls for Katanga –which is located close to the outskirts of the University’s residency – not to cross a route that links the Independence and Republic Halls. That route, if crossed by Katanga, means they’re entering the Conti territory.
