Ghana Extra: Achimota School Admits Female Halfcaste With Long Hair After Refusing Rastafarians

Achimota School has offered admission to a half-caste, Nana Akua Akoma as a first-year student of the school.

The school took to their official Twitter page to announce the admission of Nana Akua Akoma.

“Dear All, please tune in tonight for a feature with our incoming Achimotan, national tennis sensation and the winner of the 2021 @accraopen Nana Akua Akoma @iam_akua_akoma on @tv3_ghana #AchimotaExcellence ” they tweeted.

Born in Germany to a Ghanaian dad and an Irish mother, Nana Akua Akoma has long hair and is the winner of the 2021 Accra Open.

But many people have expressed misgivings over the matter after the school recently denied admission to two Rastafarians.

The boys, Tyron Iras Marhguy and Oheneba Kwaku Nkrabea who were posted to the school by the Computer School Placement System were turned away.

The two have since initiated legal proceedings against the school.
