A middle-aged Ghanaian lady has given her final conclusion on the trending debacle on whether Rastafarians should be allowed to be enrolled in senior high schools or not.

In an interview with YEN.com.gh's Philip Abutiate, the opinionated woman mentioned that students are supposed to have a certain kind of look that differentiates them from every other person.

In her own words:

I am not sure it's a nice idea or a good idea for a student to braid their hair to school, especially the males. No no no, it does not speak well of the students.

She further explained that:

As a student, you have to look decent. Your appearance talks a lot about you so if you don't look decent and you are going to school, I won't even see you as a student.

This comes after Achimota School rejected two Rastafarian students despite earlier calls by the Ghana Education Service for the duo to be accepted.

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.
