“It gives me a painful feeling to be taken from class and not to be able to learn like my classmates just because I have dreadlocks. I just want to learn like the other learners.”
“I am worried I am falling behind especially in maths. When the administrator takes me to the staffroom I sometimes sit there and do maths exercises by myself. I want to return to class.”
The word from Wilfred Phalatsi JA Free State HC:
"Not leaving this court without making sure this child in school on Monday.“
“It cannot be overemphasised that religion is a very sensitive issue and that religious intolerance can ruin the whole country.”
“The courts of this country must be alert and proactive and root out the evil of religious intolerance in any form. They should nip it in the bud wherever and whenever it raises its ugly head.”
“I would appeal to the respondents and the powers that be, to educate and make our people aware of the importance and advantages of religious diversity.”

“The learner is not going to stay in the classroom. We are going to take them out so that the minister or whoever must see we are serious about this problem.”

On behalf of RASTAFARI HOUSE OF NYAHBINGHI we want to thank you and your team, and Equal Education ( law centre) for playing the important role by assisting one of our child in Rastafari community, to be accepted at school as a true born African, representing her true identity.
