Though not strange, new reports from the neighbouring Tanzania have it that the government has now reportedly placed a ban on miniskirts.
President John Pombe Magufuli took office at the close of last year and has since has become an international hero due to strict cost-cutting measures.
Earlier this month, Magufuli issued a decree ordering all foreigners including Kenyans with or without work permits, to relinquish their jobs to the Tanzanians.
Now in a move to curb HIV/AIDS scourge, Magufuli has decided to regulate women clothing.
According to Kenya’s The Standard, Magufuli believes the garments, along with short dresses, encourage the spread of HIV/Aids.
The president reportedly blamed increasing rape cases on women citing the provocative attire they put on.
Tanzanian women have since been given three weeks to rid their wardrobes of the “offending” garments.
Nicknamed “Bulldozer”, the president is said to have emulated Zimbabwean First Lady, Grace Mugabe, who insisted women are to blame for rape because of the clothes they wear.
The miniskirts ban, comes just a few months after the country banned “twerking”.
According to The Net, the provocative dance was banned following an announcement by Cultural Development Director, Herman Mwansoko.
Mwansoko disclosed that twerking supposedly threatened original dances and impacted negatively on the new generation.
