One of the Rastafarian students who was at the centre of the Achimota School and the Rasta saga reportedly sat for exams on his first day at school.
Tyrone Iras Marhguy reported to the school on the exact day the end-of-term examinations were commencing.
His lateness in reporting to the school was as a result of the court case that he filed against the school for their refusal to admit him due to his hair.
After initial resistance from authorities of Achimota School despite a High Court judgment, the school decided to back down on its decision to appeal the case which was ruled in favor of the Rastas.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Tyrone Marhguy had reported to Achimota School to kickstart his admission process following an Accra High Court ruling ordering the management of the school to admit him and Oheneba Nkrabea.
Photos posted online show Marhguy with school-related stuff including a broom and T-Roll.
Oheneba Nkrabea, one of the two Rastafarian boys with dreadlocks who was refused admission at the Achimota School has also finally been admitted into the institution on Thursday, June 3, 2021.
According to a Citi News report, after a visit to the school on Thursday, June 3, 2021, it was confirmed that Oheneba reported to the school and completed the admission process.
The acceptance of Oheneba follows an Accra High Court ruling ordering the management of the school to admit both Oheneba Nkrabea and Tyrone Marhguy.
The report noted that the parents of Oheneba arrived at the school early in the morning and submitted the completed admission forms to the school authorities.
Oheneba began academic work as he was assigned a class.
His father, Raswad Nkrabea said the school was very receptive to him and the process was not tiresome.
His mother, Maanaa Myers, on the other hand, said she is happy with the welcome her son received today.
