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 braids or hair extensions, sleeveless blouses or any clothing made out of see-through material.
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.
Men must wear long-sleeved shirts, jackets and ties, and loose trousers.
According to BBC News, the guidelines, issued by the Ministry of Public Service apply to all non-uniformed civil servants. Staff failing to comply will be disciplined.
