Rasta Student Wins Case Against Achimota School

The Accra High Court has ordered Achimota School to admit the two Rastafarian students Tyron Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea. The two students sued the School’s Board of Governors, the Minister of Education, the Ghana Education Service and the Attorney General to enforce their fundamental Human Rights after Achimota school denied them enrollment.


In March this year, Achimota School issued admission letters to the two students. Still, it indicated that they would only be enrolled because they cut their dreadlocks per the School’s academic regulations.

However, the Human Rights Division of the High Court presided over by Justice Gifty Agyei Addo ruled that the rules in question cannot limit the fundamental human rights of two students.
