Former member of parliament for Kumbumgu constituency Ras Mubarak have clashed with outspoken Journalist Afia Pokuaa aka Vim Lady over the court order to Achimota School to admit two Rastafarian boys it denied admission.
In March 2021, the two students, Tyron Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea sued Achimota School, Education Minister, Ghana Education Service and Attorney General for impeding their right to education.
The school maintained that until the boys shaved their dreadlocks, they won’t be admitted into the institution.
Months of litigation, the duo won the case after the trial judge, Justice Gifty Agyei Addo, ruled that the fundamental human rights of the two students could not be limited by the rules in question.
But the Governing Board of Achimota School said it disagrees with the ruling and has tasked its lawyers to appeal the ruling.
Ras Mubarak took to his social media to Expressed his disappointment of Achimota School who have said they are going for appeal to challenge the verdict of the human right court.
In his post, Mr. Mubarak said the conduct of Achimota School is more of pride than the well being of student with no regard for student right.
Vim lady on the other hand came in with a reply saying, nothing stops Achimota School for going for appeal since they feel to do so and that emotions should never rule over the matter.
However, she added while at it the student should be allowed to be in school while the appeal case continues.
