Kenyans react after Aisha Juma gives orders to ban disco Matanga.

Public service, Gender and affirmative action cabinet secretary Aisha Jumwa lifted the ban on Disco Matanga at Kilifi.

The then-interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i imposed the ban in 2019 after over 17, 000 cases of teenage pregnancies were reported in the county.

“We promised to uplift small businesses and not kill them. The ban has deprived many people of their livelihoods hence I lift the ban on disco matanga. Minors should not be allowed in these functions. Police should arrest those who are found attending the functions,” she said. 

The CS said most parents have neglected their responsibility and blame the government for their failure.

“As a parent, you should always know where your child is. When the child leaves home for these functions where is the parent? Do not abscond your duties and allow your child to roam around then you blame disco matanga. If we arrest a few parents and charge them then this matter will get a solution,” she added.

Aisha Juma point came just after Governor of Nairobi Johnson Sakaja cancelled licenses for night clubs operating in residential areas following public uproar over noise pollution.

Governor Sakaja, in a statement seen by Citizen Digital on Friday, said henceforth his administration will not issue or renew licenses for night clubs in residential areas.
