Tyron Marhguy, the other Rastafarian student who was denied admission to the Achimota school has won the case against the school in court today.

The court also ordered the school authorities to admit another ‘Rasta’ student who was denied admission, Oheneba Nkrabea

Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea hauled Achimota School, the Board of Governors of Achimota School, the Ghana Education Service, Ministry of Education and the Attorney General to court, supplicating the Human Rights Division of the High Court to urge Achimota School to concede him for the reasons for his schooling.

Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea appealed to the court to in addition to other things make “an assertion that requiring Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea a youngster and disciple of the Rastafari religion and ideology, to either trim his hair or relinquish entrance into Achimota School, a public senior secondary school, is an infringement of his privileges to respect… in spite of articles 15 and 28(3) of the Constitution, 1992 and segment 13 of the Children’s Act 1998 (Act 560)”.
