No more indecent singers in schools as government bans them

The government under the Ministry of Education and Sports has banned all performing artists from holding concerts in schools both government and private.

This temporary ban was issued by the Ministry’s acting Permanent Secretary Ms Jane Egau. All schools have been advised to desist from handing invitations to artists that engage in dirty, erotic and seductive dances.

“On July 11, the country woke up to the shocking videos that were circulating on social media to portray the indecency that is allowed in our children’s schools. It is now clear that there have been several of these totally unacceptable and offensive functions allowed in schools in the names of extra curriculum and entertainment activities,” the circular dated 1st August 2022 reads.

According to Egau, schools should initiate sports, games and debates in cocurricula activities.

She stressed that if they are to entertain themselves, they should engage in acting plays and arrange concerts.

“A senior management meeting that was held at the Ministry of Education and Sports on July 18, resolved that the ministry should provide guidelines on the nature and conduct of co-curriculum and entertainment activities allowed in schools,” said Ms Egau.

The development comes a few weeks after Tororo District woman MP Hon Sarah Opendi raised it in Parliament. She said that this should be brought to a stop.

The situation gained momentum after singer Sheebah appeared at Seeta High School in Mukono in a skimpy dress. Her dances were also erotic and not proper for the students.

She’s however not the only culprit in this matter. The likes of Winnie Nwagi, Spice Diana among others have also been vindicated over such charges.
