The government of South Sudan has come under fire over its controversial policy to ban night clubs claiming that they are causing immoral behaviour.

The government also wants married couples to provide their landlords with proof of marriage to avoid live in couples.

The governor of Juba the capital city, Augustino Jadalla Wani, said in a video posted on Facebook that while nightclubs would be shut, bars would have their hours limited to early evening, and would be forbidden from operating during the day.

"Discos we ban it totally because what is happening there is really very dangerous for the future of this country," he said, adding that girls as young as 13 frequented the clubs.

"We are serious and we are going to make sure discos are not working in this country," he said.

In addition, he said the capital would make it obligatory for couples checking into hotels to produce a marriage certificate.

South Sudan is one of the poorest countries in Africa.
