18-year-old fetish priest denied admission to Dzodze-Penyi SHS speaks


The 18-year-old fetish priest who reportedly denied admission by Dzodze-Penyi Senior High School (SHS) has finally broken his silence.

As reported earlier by Mcmnt.com, the student has been denied admission into Dzodze-Penyi Senior High School after it was revealed he is a traditional priest.

Galley Felix, who wore a cap after being initiated as Togbui Tueve Awunyo II of Ative (ativɛ), in the Ketu North Municipality to school was rejected by administrators regardless of being placed by the Computerised School Selection and Placement System.

The school’s administrators insisted that he removed the cap he wore to the school, and all his explanations to them for wearing the cap did not change anything.

Breaking his silence he said;

“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.

“I could go mad and many things could happen to my community if I remove my cap in public. I have been wearing this [cap] for 13 years, and no one has asked me to remove it because they know the ramifications,” he bemoaned.

The 18-year-old, who is also handicapped in the right side, strongly believes formal education is the only way for him to attain his life objectives.
