As earlier reported, Achimota School rejected two Rastafarian students despite calls by the Ghana Education Service for the duo to be accepted.

One of the student’s father, Raswad Nkrabea, described the open rejection of both Tyrone Iras Marghuy and his son, Nhiraba Nkrabea as demoralising.

He added that since they were rejected and turned away from the school despite having legal documents, the school must write a letter to welcome the students back.

Meanwhile, a former Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Charles Aheto-Tsegah has added his voice to the ongoing Achimota School saga.

According to Aheto-Tsegah, the headmistress of the Achimota School could be sacked for disregarding the directive of the GES.

He holds the view that the school rules do not explicitly state that it has a tradition not to admit Rastafarians.
