David Otto Remson, the Magwi commissioner, restricts all music activities, including disco clubs, in the territory.
David Otto Remson, the commissioner of Magwi County in Eastern Equatoria state, has issued an order prohibiting all music activities, including disco clubs, in the region.
The directive was issued during a meeting with young people on Thursday at the Magwi county offices.
According to Mr. Remson, entertainment activities are the leading cause of crime in the area. He has also commanded that the order be carried out by security personnel, local chiefs, and youth leaders.
“Our time is to put our wits together for the kids of Magwi County as a whole; there is no time to squander,” Commissioner Remson added. “There will be no dancing in Magwi County since this is the source of negative things in our life for the foreseeable future.”
The local authority encourages the people of his county to reject tribalism and embrace the spirit of togetherness. “Education cannot wait for anybody; I want to reveal the secret of Magwi County; we are not Acholi and Madi, but Magwi.” “Get together and begin as Magwi county residents, and we will build Magwi,” he continued.
Oyet Simon Robert, a resident in the Magwi region, praised the restriction, stating that it would protect the safety of youngsters in the area.
“This problem of disco dancing prohibition in Magwi County is essentially from our government, the commissioner himself, and it is not bad but for our own safety,” he said.
“It will protect the security here.” “It is critical for security to be on the lookout for anything unusual in Magwi County,” Robert stated.
Another neighbor, Okot David, argues that the youngsters should be permitted to engage in recreational activities throughout the day.
“As a teenager, I think the halting of night dances and other disco activities at night is alright if the youth may take their time to congregate during the day, but at night, everyone should be on watch and know the security of the area,” David remarked.
