Blakk Rasta has expressed his anger in a triumphant mode.
The radio personality, upon hearing that the court had ruled the Achimota School Vs Rastafari case in favour of Rastafarians, rained curses on the school for refusing to admit Rastafarian students based on their dreadlocks in the first place.
According to him, they should have never dared to go against students because of the way they keep their hair due to religious and societal practices.
“Victory for Rasta, at last… Fire burn Achimota School for even daring! Here we come with Nyahbinghi drumming.. Tumtum… Tata tata. Tumtum..!” He whooped on Twitter.
This comes immediately the Human Right division of the Accra High Court on Monday ruled that Achimota School did not have proper legal grounds to not admit the Rastafarian boys into their school, especially on the grounds of their hairstyle. P
The boys, Tyron Marhguy and Oheneba Nkrabea had been denied admission after they refused to cut their dreadlocks as the school asked even after being selected by the Computerized School Selection and Placement System.
Justice Gifty Agyei Addo ruled that the two students must be in the school because the Attorney General could not provide any legal justification.
Blakk Rasta had been a vocal advocate for the student ever since the case began, as he maintained that no student should be denied an education because of their cultural reservations.
Ras Tetteh Wayo, counsel for the students has urged his clients to join their colleagues in school immediately.
“The point here is this, the court has declared solely that your denial of Mr A or Mr B enrolling in school is in violation of his right to education. The moment the court said that it means that stop. It means do not deny him again. So tomorrow [Tuesday], the children should go to school because now Achimota has been asked to stop violating the right to education,” he maintained.
