Daughter of a Ghanaian Politician Commits Suicide After Allegedly Failing a Course in School

Adwoa Agyarkwa, the daughter of Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi, an NPP Member of Parliament for Asante Akyem central constituency, has hanged herself.

The 18 -year-old first-year Chemical Engineering student, at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), was found dead on Friday morning in her hostel room with a rope hanging around her neck.

Although it is yet to be confirmed what must have led to the suicide, sources at KNUST campus say she failed one of her courses and couldn’t bear the shame.

Before committing the act, the deceased was said to have left a suicide note, saying: ‘am sorry to disappoint you mummy and daddy’.

Her body has been deposited at a mortuary in Kumasi, Ghana.
