High Court orders Achimota School to admit Rasta student

The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court in Accra, has ordered Achimota School to admit Tyrone Marhguy, the dreadlocked Rastafarian boy into the school.

The Court, in the same spirit, directed Achimota School to also admit Oheneba Nkrabea, another Rastafarian student into the school.

Speaking after the judgement, Tyrone Marhguy, said the court’s decision was part of “a great story.”

“The first time I walked through the gate of Achimota, the first thing I did was to check the time [I arrived] because I knew one day I would be telling a story with it. I had no idea I would be telling one great story in the courtroom about how I was discriminated [against] and how I am back.”

On going back to school and the possibility of facing further stigma, Tyrone Marhguy said “I will know how to handle it and to straighten things up when [the stigmatisation] starts.”
