Full Judgment: Achimota Vrs Rastafarian Students(Document)

The Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court on May 31, 2021, ordered the management of Achimota School to admit two Rastafarian students.

Achimota School in March this year refused to admit two students with dreadlocks, Tyron Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea due to their refusal to cut their dreadlocks.

The two students were posted to Achimota School by the Computerised School Placement System(CSPS) but the school authorities claimed it is against the rules of the school to admit students with dreadlocks.

But the trial judge, Justice Gifty Agyei Addo today ruled in favour of the students and ordered the school to re-admit them citing the rights of the students.

According to Justice Gifty Adjei Addo, failure to admit the two students because of their dreadlocks, which is a manifestation of their religious right is a violation of their human rights, right to education, and dignity.
