A lawyer of Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea and Tyrone Iras Marhguy, Wayoe Ghanamannti, has written to the Achimota school to state reasons for denying his clients admission into the school.

Mr. Ghanamannti, in the letter dated March 23, 2021, said “the school should state the reasons for its action to enable him advise his clients accordingly, as academic work has begun in all Senior High Schools”.

The Rastafarian students were barred from beginning the academic year at the Achimota School because of their dreadlocks. A number of Ghanaians have rebuked the school for taking such action.

The GES issued a directive to Achimota to allow the students entry, but the school did not budge. This was supported by the Old Students Association and the Parents and Teachers Association of Achimota.

President of the Old Achimotans Association, Prof. Ernest Aryeetey described the decision by GES as undermining the authority of the school’s governing board. The PTA Chairman, Dr. Andre Kwasi-Kumah, in a statement, said the school’s rules that insist that all students must keep their hair low, simple and natural cannot be compromised or exceptions made.

Mother of dreadlocked student, Maanaa Myers expressed disappointment over the non-compromising position by the school.
