THE Lira district Police commander, Richard Aruk Maruk, has banned discos in secondary schools, saying they are not provided for in the school curriculum.

“From today, (March 3) you will not hold discos, and no student should demand for them because they are not provided for in the curriculum,” Maruk said.

Addressing teachers and students of Lira Town College last week, he said students’ demands for discos were a sign of indiscipline that causes strikes in schools.

Maruk advised the students to form clubs and practice traditional dances that encourage morality.

He also warned that the Police would patrol and arrest students found in and around disco halls or lodges.

Maruk cited Club 24/7, Olilim and Ayago guesthouses in Kitgum as popular stop-overs for students who meet older lovers.

He warned the students against participating in strikes, noting that culprits would be imprisoned for over seven years.

“Students in candidate classes should sit for their exams and ensure that they leave the school as they found it,” Maruk stressed.

Maruk said the Police would form crime prevention clubs in secondary schools to prevent students from engaging in crime.
