Former Member of Parliament of Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak, has narrated the circumstances which masterminded his to decision go into parliament without his dreadlocks.
According to the honourable man, the laws of Ghana do not have any clause that is against one going to parliament wearing their deadlocks, but there were circumstances beyond his control that compelled him to get rid of them.
In Mubarak's own words:
“There is no law that says one cannot be a parliamentarian because of his dreadlocks. No one can prevent you from running for an election with dreadlocks but I had to cut mine because of a particular reason”, he said.
Yfmghana.com reports that he would have been a Rastafarian in Ghana's parliament but for the fact that he was becoming bald by the time he won a seat in the house.
The politician furthered that apart from the constitution of Ghana, the Bible also wholly supports the wearing of one’s natural hair.
“Rastafarians regard aspects of the Bible that supports the Nazarene lifestyle rooted in Numbers 6:5”, Ras Mubarak conjectured.
