High Court orders Achimota School to admit Rasta students, Tyrone Marhguy and Oheneba Nkrabea

Tyrone Marhguy

The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court in Accra, on Monday, May 31, 2021, ordered Achimota School to admit Oheneba Nkrabea, the dreadlock-wearing Rastafarian student into the school.

Oheneba Nkrabea

The Court had first ordered Achimota School to admit Tyrone Marhguy, another dreadlock-wearing Rastafarian student before delivering its judgment on Oheneba Nkrabea.

In the last two months, both students were refused admission into the school due to their hairstyle which they attributed to their Rastafarian culture.

The school’s only consideration to allow the duo entry was for them to cut their dreadlocks which they [students] did not budge.
