Kenyan government has placed a ban on a local dance known as ‘Kwara Kwara’ in Kacheliba sub-county West Pokot county, saying the new culture has promoted promiscuity amongst the youth in recent times.
As published by LIB, the Kacheliba Deputy County Commissioner Kennedy Kiprop who announced the ban, said chiefs and their assistants should crack the whip and arrest those found disobeying the ban.
School dropout, early pregnancies leading to early marriages have all been attributed to the surge of the new dance.
There is this new dance called Kwara Kwara that is popular among the youth and which has led to immorality among them. I am banning it with immediate effect. All the chiefs and their assistants should crack the whip and arrest those found disobeying the ban.
I am urging you, locals, not to allow youths in the villages to hold this dance as it is really derailing the gains we had made in educating our children, especially the girls.
