Gov't bans discos in Siaya County ahead of KCPE, KCSE

Siaya County Commissioner Michael Ole Tialal has banned all discos in the region ahead of this year’s national examinations.

This he said would give candidates ample time to revise for the exams uninterrupted.

Speaking during this year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations at Siaya County stadium, the county boss directed all the chiefs and their assistants across the county to ensure the ban is implemented with immediate effect.

Mr. Ole Tialal stated that this year’s candidates for both KCPE and KCSE examinations need to be accorded a conducive environment to be able to concentrate on their revision so as to perform better in their end year examinations.

He on the other hand decried the escalating rate of teenage pregnancies which currently stands at 42% in the county, noting that this has  contributed to the high rate of school dropout among the girls in the region.

The administrator has therefore issued a stern warning to the perpetrators that  the law will catch up with them.

Mr. Ole Tialal used the occasion to also impress upon the locals to help in the fight against the influx of illicit brew in the region.

He commended the chiefs and their assistants for their efforts to combat the menace but regretted that the unlawful brews are still resurfacing after sometime.

He warned that the government will not relent in the fight against illicit brew in the area.
