Back in 2013 Ugandan Legislators passed a controversial bill that was meant to ban miniskirts. The move was immediately met by an uproar from activists and citizens who immediately begun protests through the streets of the country’s capital, Kampala.
That said it seems Uganda is dead set on maintaining it’s title as a conservative country after new regulations were recently brought to the attention of Public servants in Uganda warning them to “dress decently”.
According to the circular issued by the government, female staff have been told not to show any cleavage, wear brightly colored nails, braids or hair extensions, sleeveless or transparent blouses. Men must wear long-sleeved shirts, jackets and ties, while trousers should not be tight-fitting. Staff failing to comply will be disciplined.
While women will be allowed to wear pant-suits, they have been warned not to wear any tight-fitting clothing. Dresses and skirts must at least be knee-length.
This is when team my dress my choice in Kenya demonstrate to their rights no matter what but the Ugandans are ready to go by the law for the sake of their jobs.
