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

Reports say only parties involved in the case were allowed inside.

The Court Clerk, who gave the directive, was reported as saying she was acting based on instructions from above.

About 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 Computerized School Placement System, but the school authorities claimed it is against the rules of the school to admit students with long hair.

The Ghana National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) supported the decision of the school.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) subsequently ordered Achimota School to admit the students but later made a U-turn on its stance.
In the heat of the social media debate, Tyron Marhguy went to seek admission at his second choice of school, Saint John’s Grammar but was again refused admission because of his dreadlocks.
The dreams of the two Rastafarian students to attend Achimota School lies in the hands of Justice Gifty Agyei Addo who will deliver her judgment.
