The Rastafarian Council of Ghana has appealed to the Ghana Education Service (GES), to deal with the headmaster of the Ebenezer Senior High School.
This comes after the headmaster of the above mentioned school prevented Reggae and Dancehall artiste Samini from speaking to the students of the institution because of his hair style.
Samini narrating his ordeal revealed that the headmaster kicked him out of the school simply because of dreadlocks.
He also revealed that the headmaster prevented him from engaging the students on importance of education because the headmaster found him (Samini) unfit to speak to his students
“The headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School decided that because of my dreadlocks, I was not fit to speak to the students of the school which is in Dansoman where I live, which is 5 minutes from my parents’ home,” Samini said.
Now the attention of the Rastafarian council has been drawn to the discriminatory behavior of the headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School and the council has written to The Ghana Education Service.
According to the council, the headmaster of the school, whose name is not yet known should be dealt with because he discriminated against Rastafarians.
In a statement signed by Daddy Bosco who happens to be the president of the Rastafarian Council, he reiterated that claim by the headmaster of Ebenezer Senior High School is an affront on Article 21 (c) of Ghana’s 1992 Constitution that guarantees the rights and liberties of all Ghanaians devoid of religion.
