The unfortunate demise of a final year KNUST SHS student on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, is still a talking point in Ghana.
The student who was reading Business at the KNUST secondary school died after the teachers of his school failed to give him the needed and necessary care while he was sick.
Richard Leonard Sam’s demise led to a massive demonstration on campus by his colleague students, who alleged the school authorities failed to attend to him after he complained of stomach pain.

He eventually died after hours of struggle when his parents came for him to the hospital.
In an interview with Joy News, mother of Leonard, Comfort Baidoo told a chilling story of what her son’s last words where.
According to Comfort, when she finally managed to reach the hospital where her son was admitted, the boy said, “you came too late”.
She also expressed disappointment in the school authorities for failing to at least give her son some attention and care.
