FCUBE

I’ve not been lazy. It’s been long since i made a blog post, yeah i know. It’s this assignment that I/we (my class) was/were given that made me ‘neglect’ this niche. I’ll hit you up on the assignment later.

FCUBE – Free Compulsory Universal Basic  Education. This is a policy that makes basic education (primary and junior high school) free of charge  in Ghana (excluding private schools of course).

On the other hand this is how University Hall (aka Katanga) students (Katangees) of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) interpret FCUBE. FCUBE is an activity as part of their Hall Week celebrations where they mimic primary and JHS students by being draped in their uniform commonly known as

kokonte and groundnut soup and parade the campus.Kokonte and groundnut soupOthers dress as teachers however in old school fashion. Here’s a video on a confrontation of a ‘headmaster’ and his ‘assistant’. They actually met accidentally and fell into the act.

Problem with the embedded video? Watch it on YouTube! (Click here)
For readers who do not understand the language (like me), the Headmaster is simply firing his assistant for coming to school  late!

Kolo 9t!!

 

Here comes the Headmaster!

Hmmm don’t even know how to start. The night was soo much fun. All halls on campus celebrate hall week every year. Hall week is a special activity packed week set aside for affiliates. There are various activities like beauty pageants, exhibitions, ‘kolo’ night, old skuul, red carpet programmes etc. They are weeks to remember. ‘Kolo’ night is a programme where affiliates dress like  our fathers and grandfathers did during the colonial era. The word ‘kolo’ is coined from ‘colonial’. I have chronicled my first hall week in  Independence hall of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. Wouldn’t want this/that moment blown to the back of beyond, do we? Hope u like the pics lol. Welcome to KOLO NIGHT!!
