Oheneba Nkrabea, one of the dreadlock-wearing students contending their admission at Achimota School, has currently been enrolled at Ghana International School (GIS) in Accra.

Per Kasapa News sources, the parents of the Rasta student moved their ward to the prestigious international school after they learned of the Attorney General’s decision to appeal against the High Court’s ruling that went in their favour earlier this year.

The news about Oheneba’s move has been kept under wraps as the legal challenge to overturn a high court ruling travels its full throttle.

Ghana International School (GIS) is one of Ghana’s leading international schools providing world-class holistic education to children between the ages of 3 years and 18 years.

The Human Rights Court 1 Division of the High Court in Accra, on Monday, May 31, 2021, ordered Achimota School to admit Rastafarian students Oheneba Nkrabea and Tyrone Marhguy into the school after a long legal tussle.

An Accra High Court on Monday, May 31, 2021, delivered its ruling regarding the denial of two Rastafarian boys – Tyrone Marhguy and Oheneba Nkrabea’s – admission to Achimota School because they failed to cut their dreadlocks.

Delivering its ruling, Justice Gifty Adjei Addo, the presiding judge, ordered the management of the school to enrol the embattled students.

Following the court’s decision, Achimota School through its board announced that it will appeal the decision.
