“Parents bring their children to learn morals and values. You cannot pull off those dances we see musicians do in school and also dress indecently. It is very unfortunate that we have witnessed videos of nursery children dancing the same moves,” said Opendi. “Some go there almost naked,” she added.

“What forced me to bring up this issue in Parliament is that musicians dress badly while performing in schools and even their dances are not good for kids, “said Opendi.

Opendi said that the dances and the dress cord bring shame yet the children look up to the musicians.

 “Uganda is a religious country, we have seen on social media concerts in schools with musicians dancing in very obscene seductive ways, some of them were almost naked and our students joining. As a mother is this unacceptable,” she noted.

She further urged musicians to sing for students songs that are impactful to their lives and be good role models for the students.

The chairperson Uganda woman parliamentary association also asked the Ministry of Education and sports to come up with guidelines for musicians who visit schools.
