One of the Rastafarian students who won the landmark case against Achimota School, Oheneba Nkrabea, has reported for school.

He is set to be taken through admission processes and to join his colleagues in class. He was accompanied by his parents, Ras Azwald Nkrabea and Maanaa Myers.

This comes after Achimota School retracted an application for stay of execution on the court order to admit the two Rasta boys.

The school’s Board, in a statement after the landmark ruling by an Accra High Court, which was hailed by the majority of Ghanaians, stated that it had instructed its lawyers to apply for stay of execution pending plans to appeal the decision.

The move was criticized by the Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum as a “rush decision” because “Achimota School Board of Governors have no authority to decide on the next line of action.”

Subsequently, the school’s board in another statement on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, said after consultations with relevant stakeholders it had considered the interest of all parties and retracted the decision for stay of execution.

The statement, however, added that the board was still committed to an appeal against the ruling of the High Court.

Meanwhile, the other Rasta student, Tyrone Iras Marhguy is yet to report to school.

The impasse between the students and the school has been ongoing since March 19, 2021, during which the two students have not been able to start academic work with their colleagues.

It is not an easy feat to qualify for an ‘A’ class school like Achimota School. Tyrone and Oheneba were placed at the school through the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) because they passed their Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) creditably and satisfied all entry requirements.
