Disco Matanga ceremonies have been banned in Rachuonyo East Sub County until January 2020.
The Deputy County Commissioner (DCC), Jack Obuo said the ban would allow learners sitting for KCPE and KCSE exams for this year to get ample and peaceful time to prepare to do their exams.
“Security will be tightened to ensure learners have an environment that is conducive to do their exams,” the commissioner said
The DCC gave the order Sunday during Mashujaa day celebration held at Jwelu primary school ground where he also directed chiefs and their assistants to intensify war on illicit brew in the sub county, saying the government would not relent on the crackdown of the illicit brew.
Addressing the gathering during the celebrations a retired Paramount Chief, Dick Ogola Nyakomita lauded the good working relationship between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition chief, Raila Odinga.
“The 9th March handshake has brought sustained peace in the country,” he said, adding Kenyans were now engaged in meaningful development activities.
The chief called for the naming of particular roads and schools in the region by use of names of Kenya’s Mashujaa in various fields both past and present for the remembrance of their good deeds.
