Tyrone Marghuy, the JHS graduate refused admission by Achimota School, has finally made an appearance in court over the matter.
Marghuy who was placed in Achimota after scoring an aggregate six in the BECE was refused admission into the prestigious school because of his dreadlocked hair.
While the 17-year-old and his parents said they were Rastafarians and the dreadlocks were part of the boy's faith, Achimota School insisted he should cut it before coming to school.
The case turned into a national debate after the decision of the school became public sometime in March.
Weeks after, Marghuy and his parents disclosed that they had sued the school on the grounds of being admission because of his faith.
In a new photo sighted by YEN.com.gh, Marghuy has been spotted in court on Monday, April 12, 2021. The boy shared the photo of his appearance at the court.
The photo shows Marghuy in a white with his hair neatly tied to the back of his head as he stood in front of the court building,
It is not known exactly what Marghuy went there to do but in his caption to the photo, Marghuy hoped for the best outcome in court.
Marghuy's photo has stirred many reactions on Twitter with many Ghanaians not being enthused by the decision.
The court appearance comes after Marghuy recently spoke of his love for mathematics in a new video.
According to him, maths happens to be his favourite subject and he has covered all the topics in the SHS syllabus using one month.
