The cake of justice has been shared equally. The Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court has ordered the authorities of Achimota School to admit the two Rastafarian students who were earlier denied admission into the school on the basis of wearing dreadlocks.
Before the judge made her pronouncements on the issue which attracted public discourse, journalist and camera men were ordered to leave the courtroom. In the end, she ruled in favour of the two students who were placed by the Computerized School Selection and Placement Systems after writing their BECE in Achimota Senior High School.
The parents of the students are also demanding a compensation from the school for causing inconvenience, embarrassment, abusing the rights and freedoms of their wards and on top of it all, wasting their precious time.
Tyron Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, the two students at the centre of the case, will now pack their school belongings and joyfully head to Achimota School to pursue their dreams in high school without fear nor favour.
Pictures from the court
pictures coming in from the premise of the Accra High Court depict that joy and relief after the back and forth of Mr. Ras Aswad Nkrabea in getting admission for his son failed. The Rastafarian community were also present in court and jointly celebrate the victory of their brother.
