Oheneba Nkrabea the Rasta Student quits Achimota School; gains admission to GIS

Oheneba Nkrabea the Rasta Student quits Achimota School; gains admission to GIS

It’s obvious that the woes of the famous rasta students in our educational history are not dead yet even after the High court ruled in their favor.

One of the students who challenged Achimota School and Ghana Education service, Oheneba Nkrabea has quitted Achimota School and has currently been enrolled at the prestigious Ghana International School (GIS) in Accra after they received threats that the Attorney General was going to appeal against the High Court’s ruling that went in their favor.

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.

Meanwhile, the Lawyer for Rastafarian student, Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea, Ras Wayoe Ghanamannti, has described as unfortunate the Attorney General’s appeal against the High Court’s ruling in the Rasta kids case.

Speaking on GHOne TV Tuesday, the lead Counsel argued that the flagrant disrespect of the interest of these kids which is paramount per the principles of the law is problematic.

He fears the children would be affected psychologically as the case has been advanced further at the Appeals court.

“The psychological trauma, the instability, the emotional stress, and those ambits of it is what is worrying us because these are children, these are young guys, and they’ve started going to school so at the end of the day any such decision will traumatize them. And we think that this is what the AG should have considered. Because if you look at our law – the Children’s Act, Section 2, on the very first principle, it’s clear that in everything that we seek to do the interest of the Child is paramount and even court of law and all other agents of security and all other persons would respect that principle that the interest of a child is paramount.

“So we thought that considering this case and their interest in respect of education, the AG would have allowed this to pass and if there is any future advancing of the rules Achimota is using holistically to preserve and protect minority rights like these rights of the Rastas we are talking about it would be looked at but to bring this appeal on and to pile up pressure and emotional stress on the children is unfortunate.”

The Achimota School board and the Attorney-General’s Department have filed an appeal to challenge the Human Rights High Court’s order for the school to admit the two dreadlock-wearing students.

The Achimota School per the appeal said, the court among other things erred by indicating that the rules and regulations of Achimota School with regard to ensuring uniformity in appearance is unlawful and interferes with the manifestation of one’s religious rights.

The school board has therefore filed the appeal to have the entire judgment set aside and the plaintiff ordered to comply with the school’s regulations if he (Tyrone Marhguy) chooses to be a student of the school.

The AG’s office has also filed an appeal on the case, asking the court to uphold Achimota School’s arguments and rule in favor of the school.

The notice of appeal said the judge who adjudicated that matter and gave victory to the two boys failed to get the plaintiffs to provide evidence of their claims.

The AG’s office also said the judge erred in claiming that Achimota School had interfered with the right to the education of the boys.

“The learned Judge erred when she held that the regulation of the 1st Respondent requiring that students keep their hair low amounted to an illegal and unconstitutional attempt to suspend the manifestation of the Applicant’s guaranteed freedom to practice and manifest his religion…”

ECOWAS Chairman Nana Akufo-Addo meets Mamady Doumbouya in Guinea

ECOWAS Chairman Nana Akufo-Addo meets Mamady Doumbouya in Guinea

His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo who doubles as the President of the Republic of Ghana and the Chairperson of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is in the capital of Guinea, Conakry to have talks with the military junta that has overthrown President Alpha Condé’s government. President Akufo-Addo and his entourage were welcomed by the Guinean Military leadership led by Mamady Doumbouya.

The meeting is centered on how the military junta can help restore the democratic sanity in the Republic of Guinea and also negotiate on releasing the captured President Alpha Condé.

Before this meeting, the leadership of the West African Regional bloc on 16th September 2021 had an emergency meeting in Accra, Ghana, and deliberated on the two coups that have taken place in Mali and Guinea.

The Regional block resorted to sanctioning Guinea. All the heads of state in the bloc decided to freeze the financial assets and impose travel bans on Guinea’s junta members and their relatives, insisting on the release of President Alpha Condé and a short transition.

In a previous virtual meeting led by the head of ECOWAS, President Akufo-Addo reaffirmed ECOWAS’ objection to any unconstitutional political change.

“ECOWAS demands respect for the physical safety of the President of the Republic, Professor Alpha Condé”. We ask the Guinean defense and security forces to remain in a constitutional posture and express our solidarity with the Guinean people and their government,” it added.
