Judgement on rasta student, Oheneba Nkrabea’s suit for May 31


The Human Rights Court 1 of the High Court in Accra will on May 31 deliver its judgement on the Oheneba Nkrabea suit against the Achimota School and three others.

The lawyer for the applicant, Wayoe Ghanamannti in arguing on the substance of the case, opined that per the offences and sanctions contained in the Achimota school rules, deferring his admission into the school would be contrary to its own regulations.

This is because students found to be keeping bushy hair are liable to an internal or external suspension, a punishment that can only be administered to a student enrolled at the school.

For the Chief State Attorney, Stella Badu, and lawyer for the Achimota school, Kwesi Fynn, allowing Oheneba Nkrabea to maintain his dreadlocks will defy the rules of uniformity on campus and maybe unhealthy.

The court, presided over by her ladyship, Gifty Adjei Addo, thus set the day for judgement on Monday, May 31, the same day that the other rastafarian student, Tyrone Marhguy’s case would be decided.
