Letter to the Editor

Knife girls’ dance should be regulated

Dear editor,
I WOULD like to agree with YWCA and the Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs that knife girls at weddings are becoming a source of moral concern.
Today’s knife girls are a total display of seduction starting from the dressing going all the way to the actual dance.
These young girls are dressed in revealing attires such as leggings and bam shorts.
As though that is not enough these girls put up performances which leave morally upright adults downcast with embarrassment.
However, there are some questionable adults who seem to enjoy such seductive displays and are seen showering these young girls with kwacha notes. This encourages the girls to wriggle their waists even more. I believe it is a matter of where one stands morally.
For the sake of giving guidance and grooming morally upright children, there is need to ban such dances.
The Bible says train a child in the way he should go so that when they are old they will not depart from it. If we are teaching and actually celebrating our children for putting up seductive dances should we be surprised if they become prostitutes in future.
