Police arrest and release 23 women at the nightclubs in Kwajok KWAJOK (17 Sep.)
Police in Kwajok town have arrested 23 women found in television clubs on Tuesday night, including four women who serve tea in the market and also one SPLA soldier. The women spent a night in police custody before being released on Wednesday. They were warned of consequences if found again in the clubs. Gogrial Police Commissioner Major General John Akot Maluth says that it is unacceptable for married women to stay outside their houses at night. “Clubs are not means for women but for men because women have other duties to attend at homes like taking care of children.” “It is not good and not even in our culture that women and men watch movies together at night because a lot of thing may happen and this is what we don’t want as police,” Akot said General Akol also warned clubs owners not to play pornographic movies and operate beyond working hours. Meanwhile, one of the women who serves tea in the market but was among those arrested explained that she was arrested while serving her customers. “My working place is behind the club and my customers are most those who go to the club,” she said. She says she was only collecting cups when she was arrested. “I was found collecting cups after I brought tea to my customers inside the television room. That is how I was arrested and I tried to explain to police officers but they refused and brought me here.” -- To post to this group, send email to email@example.com To unsubscribe from this group, send email to southsudankob+unsubscr...@googlegroups.com Visit this group at https://groups.google.com/d/forum/southsudankob View this message at https://groups.google.com/d/msg/southsudankob/topic-id/message-id For more options, visit https://groups.google.com/d/optout --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "South Sudan Info - The Kob" group.
