Second Rastafarian student reports to Achimota School | Latest News Updates & Newspaper Headlines


This comes after the Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court ordered the Achimota school to admit the two Rastafarian students at the centre of the school admission brouhaha.

The court presided over Justice Gifty Agyei Addo ruled that the fundamental human rights of two students cannot be limited by the rules in question.

Tyrone Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea sued Achimota school for denying them admission because of their dreadlocks.

The applicants are asking the court to declare that the failure and or refusal of the school to admit or enroll them on the basis of their Rastafarian religious inclination, beliefs, and culture characterised by keeping their dreadlocks is a violation of their fundamental human rights and freedoms guaranteed under the 1992 Constitution, particularly Articles 12(1); 23; 21(1)(b)(c); 26(1)); and 17(2) and (3).
