Twerking, a type of dance move that sees females dance in a sexually inducing manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low squatting stance, will no longer be allowed in public by the government of the East African country.

According a statement released by the country’s Director of Cultural Development, Prof Herman Mwansoko, twerking is destroying the country’s culture and impacting negative morals in the new generation. ‘The dance threatens our original dances, which are our identity, the new generation will be filled with what they see now and may not be aware that there has been a real Baikoko for instance,’ the statement said.

According research, twerking is actually believed to have originated from West Africa (for instance the popular Mapouka dance) and has been around for several generations before it was adopted by African Americans in the 90s.

However, the dance was not originally done with sexual intent until it hit the hip hop scene in America where it became sexualised as part of the hip hop culture especially in rap videos.
