Journalists sacked from courtroom in Achimota School versus Rastafarian students case


Ahead of judgment in the matter involving two Rastafarian students and Achimota School, all journalists were ejected from the courtroom of the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court.

The Human Rights Division of the High Court is expected to deliver the final judgement on the case today, May 31, 2021.

However, according to a report by Joy News, the Court Clerk directed all journalists to move out of the courtroom ahead of the ruling.

The report added that the clerk failed to give any tangible reason, aside from saying the directive was “from above”.

Citi FM journalist Vivian Kai Lokko also took to Twitter to express shock at the court’s decision to eject journalists ahead of the ruling.

Over two months ago, Achimota School refused to admit two students with dreadlocks – Tyron Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea – due to their refusal to cut their dreadlocks.

The two students were posted to Achimota School by the Computerised School Placement System but the school authorities claimed it is against the rules of the school to admit students with dreadlocks.

The school came under intense criticism over this decision with some describing the decision as backward. The Ghana National Association of Graduate Teachers supported the decision of the school.

The Ghana Education Service subsequently ordered Achimota School to admit the students but later made a U-turn on its stance.
