South-Sudanese government wants to curb immorality amonsgt the citizens and to ensure this, policy makers have said in order for a man and woman to access a hotel together, they have to produce a marriage certificate first!
The announcement came minutes after the governor, Mr Wani banned night clubs and restricted opening hours of bars in the country’s capital city of Juba to between 5pm and 10pm in the evening. The move he said was to prevent teens especially girls as young as 13 from patronising such places.
Speaking to the press, the governor stated: “We banned discos totally because what is happening there is really very dangerous for the future of this country.
We are serious and we are going to make sure discos are not working in this country until we make sure that there is stability and the young ones cannot go there.”
South Sudan, officially known as the Republic of South Sudan, is a landlocked country in East-Central Africa. The country gained its independence from the Republic of the Sudan in 2011, making it the newest country with widespread recognition.
