Some Ghanaians are reacting with amusement following an announcement that their Royal Highnesses the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall will visit the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) during a visit to Ghana.

The couple are expected to visit Ghana on November 2 as part of a tour of three African countries.

The reactions to the disclosure that KNUST has been included in their itinerary stems from the fact that the university has been closed down indefinitely following a violent demonstration by the students on October 22.

At the moment, the Ashanti Regional Security Council (REGSEC), has imposed a dusk-to-dawn curfew on the university campus with immediate effect.
