Judy Ojaamong backs Matiang’i ban on disco Matanga

Busia First Lady Judy Ojaamong has backed Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i for banning local dances popularly known as disco matanga convened by families to raise burial expenses for their loved ones.

Speaking during the burial of former Councillor of Agolot Ward Magdalene Narocho Odionyi, 55, at Ojaami Estate on Saturday, Judy said the move to ban disco matanga was laudable.

“I support the Interior CS bold move to outlaw the practice. The move will improve schools’ performance across the county,” she said, adding that it will also enable children pursue their education career.

Mrs Ojaamong pledged to move around the county to promote Matiangi’s ban order. “I am ready   to escort children to school and say no to disco matanga.

Despite discontent on the performance of  students across the county in 2018 KCSE examination that saw no student score  an A, the First Lady said  the fact that 1134 students qualified for direct entry to university after scoring C+  and above shows there is room for improvement.

Judy promised to help the Governor Sospeter Ojaamong leave a legacy on education though her hash tag clarion calls MamaEducation.

She urged parents to assist in moulding their children education careers instead of blaming county and national governments when their children fail to excel in national exams.
