Interior CS Fred Matiang'i Bans Night Dance in Transzoia County

Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang'i has banned all night vigil and dances popularly known as 'disco matanga' in the entire Transzoia county with immediate effect. According to the interior CS, the night dances and functions are contributing to increased cases of teenage pregnancy and defilement of young girls in the county.

Matiang'i had further condemned the belief of replacing the dead where locals use underage girls. This practice is archaic and goes against the children and human rights. It is important to mote that Kitale is among the leading areas with early teenage pregnancies and defilement. This trend has been attributed to functions such as the night functions.

Therefore, CS Matiang'i has instructed the county police commander to arrest all the culprits that will be found engaging in the practice and charge them in courts. Matiang'i has also wondered how the night functions continue to take place while there is an active curfew imposed throughout the country to tame the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Transzoia residents have been urged to join the security forces in ending the teenage pregnancy and its roots in the society.
