The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court, has ordered Achimota School to admit Tyrone Marhguy and Oheneba Nkrabea, the two Rastafarian boys into the school and despite this been great news for many, especially the Rastafarian community in Ghana, it has not gone down with some too.
The later describes it as unfortunate. Taking to his Twitter account just an hour ago, @nfaoforiatta writes that,
"Sad day for training about rules and matters of principle to young people: our biggest bane. Nothing against Rasta. It was never about religion."
The President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT), Angel Carbonu had always maintained his stance that, Achimota must not admit the Rasta students and hence, his rants after the judgement may have been well predictable.
Initially, he had even to the extent of suggesting that, if Rastafarians want their children to keep their dreadlocks on in senior high schools (SHS), then they should set up their own schools in Ghana.
“I don’t even know why the Rastafarians don’t have their own schools, because they’ve been in this country [Ghana] for a very long time,” Mr Angel Carbonu had said, whiles he was then addressing a press conference in Accra in reaction to a decision by the Achimota Senior High School not to admit two Rastafarian first year students on campus unless they cut their hair.
Clearly, with this new judgement from the Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court, Tyrone and Nkrabea will well settle in at Achimota School and be tutored by members of Mr Angel Carbonu's NAGRAT Association.
