An 18-year old student has reportedly been denied admission to the Dzodze-Penyi Senior High School for never removing a cap on his head.
The young man claims he has been enstooled as a chief and is not allowed to take off his cap or he could go mad.
The incident took place in 2018 and has regained national prominence after the issue of rasta students denied admission to Achimota.
“I gained admission to Dzodze-penyi Senior High, but I was told I would only be allowed into the school if I remove my cap, but according to our culture, there is no way I can remove it. I tried explaining to the school why I wear the cap, but the school insisted I take it off before being allowed in the school” the 18-year old student, Togbui Tueve Awunyo, told Citi News at the time.
“I could go mad and many things could happen to my community if I remove my cap in public. I have being wearing this [cap] for 13 years, and no one has asked me to remove it because they know the ramifications,” he said.
