Tyrone Marghuy and Oheneba Nkrabea, two Rastafarian Achimota SHS students, have been taken back to court by the Achimota School and the Attorney General.
The school claims that the court flawed in ruling that the school’s uniformity rules and regulations are illegal and infringe on one’s religious rights.
If the boys wish to stay in school, the school wants the Appeal Court to order them to follow the school’s rules.
As a result, the current lawsuit asks the Court of Appeal to overturn the High Court’s decision and require the two students to follow the rules in the same way that all other students do.
The Attorney General believes that Achimota School’s action did not violate the boys’ right to education.
The Achimota School denied Nkrabea and Marhguy admission March 18, 2021, due to their dreadlocks. The father of one of the Rastafarian students took to social media to rant over the school’s reluctance to admit the students.
Raswad Menkrabea, the father of one of the dreadlocked boys, while dissatisfied with the school’s decision to turn away the kids, has threatened to sue the school. His reactions sparked widespread outrage, as most people shared diverse opinions.
