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.
