The comments here shows the reason why Nigeria remains backward and our leaders steal with impunity. We have all adopted the "subservience" posture. The Nigerian constitution, and I am sure other constitutions, has a supremacy clause. All rules made by any institution, body or agency which is inconsistent with the provision of that constitution is void to the extent of such inconsistency. That is the law and it is bigger than any other institution.
I am sure that the Kenyan constitution will have guaranteed her rights to dressing, expressing religious believes as well as rights of association. She should fight when those guaranteed rights are trampled upon. it is only then that our leaders will start either respecting or fear us. If the Catholic can't accept the dictates of the Constitution, they should relocate their school to a polity that supports their view. They are not bigger than the Constitution.

Let's start defending our rights.

Well said... However, the institution also reserved the rights to also select their students based on their own criteria. The girl should simply go to a school that will accommodate her religious beliefs! For people like her, constitution means nothing when it clashes with her religious beliefs.

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

As a teacher, I have seen cases of students lying to their parents to have their hair done only for them to see their boyfriends, some will go and gist with their friends and forget to come back home on time, the hair getting a long time to be done.
Parents will start calling the school asking about the whereabouts of their children.

Good
I hate seeing little girls sporting short or no hair.e.g. Emmanuela.
Only Subsaharan Africans think it's ok to uglify children by cutting off their hair.
Many parents are ignorant about hair care or are too lazy to sort their children's hair so they take the easy way out.

There are so many other things to lie about - after school lessons, group study, visiting female friends, going to buy books, stationery....... even going to the barber's and have to wait their turn.
Short or no hair makes no difference to a child determined to go astray.

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.

Why bring tribalism to every issue? I am very sure you do not know the state of origin of that law school student. She could be any state in Nigeria. You are a lady behaving like this on a public forum. I wonder what you will pass to your children.

I'm not a tribalist so carry your religous self outta my mention.they knew the rules yet They want to complain .So,i should applaud her.

Biko,world best mum,open your own school and enrol her

There are many schools without the rule, there is nothing to explain to you here. Na so the owner of the school want am. You can open your own school and remove the rule.

What is this one saying? They told you missions schools in Europe And America don't do their own things separate from the way it is done in public institutions? Na by force to attend mission schools?
Those schools by the way are primarily for the adherents of the faith, if anyone not of the school faith is admitted, it is simply out of benevolence. Africa remain subservient because of ordinary hair matter? Wetin man no go hear self for nairaland.

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
