A Rastafarian student who was denied admission into the Achimota Senior High School says, he will not cut his dreadlocks even if it costs him to loss his admission at the school.
The eloquent and intelligent young student, Tyron Marghuy who revealed his stance while speaking on a national television has vowed not to sacrifice his dreadlocks for enrollment in Achimota School as the authorities of the school are forcing him to do.
Tyron Marghuy, speaking at Joy News PM Express hosted by Evans Mensah monitored by Coverghana.com.gh added that, the authorities of Achimota School’s decision to coeced him trim his dreadlocks before being allowed admission is an act of discrimination against his religion.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service (GES) has asked the authorities of the Achimota School to enroll Tyron Marghuy and other dreadlocks into the school but the Headmistress and her management board declined the directive from GES.
“Keeping dreadlocks is a belief of the Rastafarian, As per my age, I go with my dad’s religion just as in every home. Because if your Mum or Dad has a religion, you as a kid, you may want to go with your Dad’s religion. So long as I’m under their shelter and care, I will want to go with their religion even if it will cost me my education,” Tyron Marghuy explained.
