Talented young Disk Jocker, DJ Switch has commended government’s Free SHS policy scheduled to be implemented in September. According to him, the project will go a long way to curb the practice of forced marriages since the financial burden of most parents will be reduced.
Speaking at the sidelines of the Free SHS campaign Saturday, she advised youth and parents to take advantage of the Free SHS and allow their wards to benefit from the program.
The season 8 talented kids winner advised parents against forcing their kids into early marriages since it will ruin the future they could have should they tap into the countless opportunities presented by the policy.

Flyers among other things containing information about the policy were distributed as they moved along the streets.
