Youths are losing ‘network’ over changaa and bang- Teso North Chief


Kakapel Location Chief in Teso  North  Vincent Etyang has raised an alarm over irresponsible  drinking of illicit changaa brew and bhang  by the youth  in his location which has led to most of them losing ‘network.’

Speaking during the burial of   Miriam Arupia,90,   at Kekalet village at the weekend, Etyang regretted the middle generation might  become  extinct since most of the youth  are becoming impotent.

” Chang’aa that is sold in sachets has become the order of the day with the youth who have reached the age of getting married  getting married to the illicit changaa and bhang.

I am appealing to leaders from all walks of life to intervene   and talk to these youth  on the dangers of alcohol so that they can abandon this worrying culture which is threatening the population of the area,” he said.

The Chief said  they will convene a meeting of all stakeholders on Thursday this week  in a bid to come up with  measures to curb this worrying trend.

Etyang  also raised concerns over incidents  arising from disco matanga  which is still practiced despite the National Government imposing a ban on it, warning those involved of dire consequences.

He cited an incident in the area last week when  some youths who tried to  block the outlawed gathering were injured after being stoned in the ensuing melee.
