It seems the drama surrounding the admission of two dreadlocked students to Achimota School is finally coming to an end.
A few days back, an Accra high court ruled in favor of the dreadlocked students to go to school without any hinderance or coercion for them to cut of their hair to conform with the school’s standard. There was great jubilation by the parents of the students, their family as well as many Ghanaians. Their joy was however short lived when it came out that Achimota School had filed for an appeal against the ruling.
Whiles the appeal is yet to be heard, one of the students, Oheneba Nkrabeah, the eloquent and soft-spoken young man with the longest dreadlocks among the two, in the company of his parents has reported to school and is believed to have gone through the admission process and subsequently admitted to class.
If the report is true, then it means , the other student, Tyrone Marghuy will eventually join his friend at school very soon.
