One of the student's father, Raswad Nkrabea, described the open rejection of both Tyrone Iras Marghuy and his son, Nhiraba Nkrabea as demoralising
He added that since they were rejected and turned away from the school despite having legal documents, the school must write a letter to welcome the students back.
News of this development has met public outcry and Ghanaians have come up with eight photos of foreign Achimota students who were enrolled with long hair.
Many are suggesting that the school is inadvertently practising discrimination by rejecting the Rastafarian students after accepting the foreigners with similar hairstyles.
See some of the pictures below:
1. Foreign girls with long hair:
2. Another foreign student allowed with her long natural hair

In another interesting report, the Ghana Education Service has made a U-turn on its earlier directive to the Achimota School to admit the two Rastafarian students.
The GES had earlier instructed the school to admit the Rasta students after they were denied admission because of their hair.
In a new revelation by Blakk Rasta, after a crunch meeting with the headmistress of Achimota School, they were briefed that the GES has changed its mind on the issue.
He disclosed on Zylofon FM that he had attended the meeting with the parents of the students only to receive that information.
