MP wants school going children banned from going out at night

05 June 2015, 11:18 John Kioko

Kwale - Msambweni MP, Suleiman Dori has urged Kwale county assembly to come up with laws restricting school going children from going out past 8:00 pm.

Speaking at Mwaroni primary school while handing over seven classrooms, Dori said that banning night discos has not worked and so new measures should be put in place including laws by county assembly.

“Let our county assembly members come up with laws that will deal with parents who allow their children to attend such ceremonies at night instead of giving them a chance to study,” he said.

Dori said the problem has forced many children to drop out of school after getting pregnant, while others are married off at a tender age.

“We should not allow this thing to continue while we have leaders who can deal with it using county laws. I am convinced that the county assembly has the power and commitment to deal with the issue,” he said.

He said the law will see all primary and secondary school students found outside past 8:00 pm arrested alongside their parents in a bid to ensure enhance their academic performance.

“We have to be strict because a lot of money is being pumped to help our children by both national and county government,” he added.

His sentiments were echoed by Kwale Red Cross chair, Mshenga Ruga and Kinondo MCA, Juma Maone.

The two asked parents to take up the responsibility of protecting their children.

“Time has come for us to deal with the real issue affecting our society if we want the education standards in this region to improve,” said Mshenga Ruga.
