"I Received Death Threats Via Mail" – Quiz Mistress, Dr. Elsie Kauffman Speaks After #NSMQ2021(VIDEO

The 2021 Quiz Mistress for the recently held National Science and Mathematics (NSMQ), Dr. Elsie Kauffman has revealed that she received death threats via mail before and after the grand final of the year's competition.

According to her, the death threats came from unknown persons.

Speaking on a Kumasi-based television station, the Quiz Mistress said "People were so wild. Some went as far as fishing out my email address, phone number and sent me death threats.. I have received my death threats already"

It is emerging that some followers of the recently held quiz were unhappy about what they call an advantage given to Prempeh College by the Quiz Mistress during a round in which each school had 15secs to solve a question.

She, however, denied the allegations stressing that the quiz was guided by rules.

"It's spelled out to the contestants of the respective schools competing and if any school feels there’s a blunder, they have the right to instantly raise concerns but not when the program has been done"

However a formal complaint is yet to be made to the police hierarchy about the death threats.

Dr. Elsie A. B. Effah Kaufmann is a Ghanaian academic, biomedical engineer and current host of the famous National Science and Maths Quiz.
