Uganda government bans mini skirts and long nails

The country's new anti-pornography law bans women from revealing their thighs, breasts and buttocks and from "dressing indecently in a manner to sexually excite."

Uganda government bans mini skirts and long nails

Public servants in Uganda are facing a strict dress code after the government issued a circular warning them to “dress decently”.

Female staff have been told not to show any cleavage, wear brightly coloured 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. The guidelines, issued by the Ministry of Public Service apply to all non-uniformed civil servants. But there is a feeling that female staff are the main focus on the new rules.

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. Uganda is a conservative society and women have previously complained of being harassed if they wear mini-skirts in public.
