Speaker Anitah Among noted that the need to promote tourism was coming at the expense of children who would attend the said event.
“We are talking about morality of this country; we are talking about our children. You are trying to promote tourism at the expense of our children? We are not going to allow this function to take part.” Said Speaker Anitah
Supporting the decision was comedian Patrick Salvado who called on parents to take up their duties saying the event was justifying poor parenting.
“I think we are just looking for excuses to justify our poor parenting, by the time my underage child goes for Nyege Nyege, I have failed as a parent.. let’s stop this nonsense and start parenting,” said Salvado
