A form one student failed to join a Catholic sponsored school in Kisumu West on Tuesday, January 9, after she refused to shave her hair as required by the school. Her long hair was the only impediment as she had complied with all the other requirements before she could be admitted to St Mark Obambo Secondary School.

The girl identified as Sharon Akinyi maintained that she could not betray her faith citing that women are allowed to have long hair as it is considered their covering.

It is not the first time that the school has hit headlines by effecting this hair policy when it suspended a form four student in 2014 for having long hair. The student was among three others but she did not shave hers after her parents' church pastor and education officials were involved and at the moment, she is working as a nurse, according to reports by the Standard.

A teacher at the school said that the policy does not seek to discriminate or victimise but it is because of the high temperatures and dust.

I am sure if the instruction was for her to wear mini skate and cloths that will expose her unclothedness, she wouldn't have rejected it.







"The girl identified as Sharon Akinyi maintained that she could not betray her faith citing that women are allowed to have long hair as it is considered their covering".

Since you can't betray your faith, let your faith build your kind of school for you.

She can't be bigger than the institution..

Don't know why people just want to thread for no other reason than disobedience, even the bible she is quoting said will respect constituted authorities.

She never ready to go school. When she's ready she'll either shave her hair or go to another school, it's not a hard something.

She has no business even going near the school gate for admission if she is not ready to abide by her rules.

Hope some freedom fighters will not roast the school management?

But seriously, why do schools mandate female students to cut their hair?
I sincerely want to know.

Because, why would you spend the early years of your life cutting your hair only to end up buying another person's (Brazilian/indian) hair later in life?

It doesn't make sense

You're a typical yam-legged ipob dullard. I'm sure you're one of those who went nude to go disrupt the meeting at Enugu shouting "we no go glee" grin cheesy

First of all, Akinyi is not a Yoruba name, it's a kenyan name

Secondly, Kisumu is a kenyan city

Why is it so frickin difficult for some of you to google things?

And if you had read the post, you'd have noticed the names weren't Nigerian. You can't read, you can't use google but you have the frickin guts to call someone who passed Law school exams ugly

Girl, there are many schools that you can attend and keep long hair even perm it if you don't want to obey the law of the catholic school and cut your hair. Since your hair is more impt than your education.
So this is no news. Moreover let parents continue to teach their children disobedience. It will surely bounce back at them.

Re: PHOTO: Young Girl Rejected By Catholic School For Refusing To Shave Her Hair by AdolfHitlerxXx: 7:33am On Jan 13
Nothing to complain about, it's called DISCIPLINE. Or RULES & REGULATIONS.

If you can't abide by them, go to other schools. It's not by force.

Even Muslims know the reputation of Catholic schools for instilling good standards & values and being strict in their rules.

Reminds me of an Argentine football coach who asked all his players to cut their long hair. Gabriel Batistuta complied and was played. Claudio Canniga didn't and was kicked out

It did not happen in Nigeria dear, it's in Kenya. How this is our business, I'm yet to know. Maybe it's to blame Buhari or Fulani herdsmen.

On a lighter note this is another firdaus story, if you can't abide by the rules F.out already. Lol
