The Kenyan government has outlawed the 'Kwara Kwara' dance, which has been linked to increasing immorality and early pregnancy among teenagers and young people.
According to reports, Kwara Kwara, which is popular in the Kacheliba sub-county of West Pokot county, has been dubbed a trigger for the rising number of early pregnancies and early marriages in the area.
As a result, Kennedy Kiprop, Deputy County Commissioner in Kacheliba, declared the dance illegal.“There is this new dance called ‘Kwara Kwara’ that is popular among the youth and which has led to immorality among them. I am banning it with immediate effect. All the chiefs and their assistants should crack the whip and arrest those found disobeying the ban.” Kennedy Kiprop says.
