OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Tyrone Marghuy, a JHS graduate, has been making headlines after news came up that he has been refused admission into Achimota School for his senior high education.
Marghuy and one other, Oheneba Nkrabea, were refused by the school because they sported dreadlocks.
While the school directed that the two students should cut their dreadlocks before being given admission, their parents have insisted that their hairstyle is part of their belief as Rastafarians and thus a right for them to have and attend the school.
Marghuy has even insisted that he is not going to cut his dreadlocks and would look for alternatives if everything fails.
It has turned out that Marghuy is part of a set of triplets for his parents. His other siblings, two girls, are also being affected by the ongoing saga.
Marghuy's sisters, according to their father, had been offered admission to attend St John's Grammar School.
But following the saga, the father who spoke on Joy News TV's PM Express on Tuesday night revealed, authorities at St John's Grammar are threatening to revoke the admission if the girls do not cut their dreadlocks.

Meanwhile, 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.
