Information gathered by YEN.com.gh indicates that teachers at the Agona Swedru Methodist ‘B’ School have been forced to hold classes under trees after some residents “shit-bombed” the school.
The incident reportedly happened on Tuesday morning, June 1, 2021.
The action of the residents has affected both the students and the entire teaching staff, Starrfm.com.gh reported as sighted by YEN.com.gh.
Speaking to Accra-based Kasapa FM, the headmaster of the school, Akwasi Ahensan Napolean described the situation as “unbearable.”
He said the residents eased themselves into eating bowls belonging to the teachers and “placed them on and under teachers’ tables in their classrooms.”
Some of the pupils who spoke to Kasapa FM threatened to boycott the school if nothing is done about their predicament.
“We sometimes come to school and find out that some people have defecated into the school’s feeding bowls, and have placed them under the tables of both teachers and pupils,” they said as the Assemblyman for the Abronye Electoral Area, Small Emmanuel Aggrey, called on the teachers to be calm.
Still, with education, the Rastafarian student who won the ‘dreadlock’ case against the Achimota School has stated that he feared at some point during the landmark case the judge will be bribed to rule against him.
“At a point, I lost hope because looking at the country and from what I watch on the news and corruption, I thought the judge could be bribed," Oheneba Nkrabea said on Morning Starr and monitored by YEN.com.gh.
He was thus “surprised” when the ruling “went in our favour.” “It has to do with the system,” he stressed.
The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court in Accra on Monday ordered the Achimota School to admit Tyrone Marhguy and Oheneba Nkrabea, the dreadlock-wearing Rastafarian boys into the school.
The ruling was read by High Court Judge, Gifty Adjei Addo.
Her reasons were that failure to admit the applicant because of their dreadlocks, which is a manifestation of their religious right is a violation of their human right, right to education, and dignity.
Tyrone Marhguy filed a suit against the Achimota School’s decision not to admit him over their dreadlocks.
The Achimota school demanded that both Tyrone and Oheneba cut off their dreadlock before they would be admitted into the school.
