Leer town court chairperson says he wants to ban young girls from chewing gum.

Simon Gatjuat Jal says it’s very common to see girls along the road chewing bubble gum.

He says it is irresponsible and embarrassing, and the issue needs attention from parents.

“People say women have the right; is that the right we talk about?” Mr. Jal told Eye Radio’s partner community radio, Naath FM.

“How can we give them the right if they are doing bad things and you are not seeing, for instant, if you see your newlywed wife chewing gum, it can even force you to divorce her.

“And if it is your daughter, you can feel ashamed.”

Gatjuat Jal says chewing of bubble gum by girls is part of a negative change in society.

“I will confirm from the commissioner if it is good for young women whose bride price has been paid and girls to chew in the market.”
