Banning Mini – skirts

The most annoying article I have seen in many months. This is more annoying than CB, in fact even a more annoying than the battle with SAGE. But he got it first, take it home slugger

Miniskirt Row Rocks Uganda

by Kent Mensah, AfricaNews Editor in Accra, Ghana

Heated debate erupted in the Eastern African country of Uganda as to whether women should be banned from wearing tight miniskirts in public or otherwise. The country’s ethics and integrity minister is spearheading the call because women wearing them distract drivers and cause traffic accidents.

Minister Nsaba Buturo told journalists in the capital Kampala that wearing a miniskirt was like walking naked in the streets, according to a BBC report.

“What’s wrong with a miniskirt? You can cause an accident because some of our people are weak mentally. Wearing a miniskirt should be regarded as indecent, which would be punishable under Ugandan law,” he added.

“If you find a naked person you begin to concentrate on the make-up of that person and yet you are driving. These days you hardly know who is a mother from a daughter, they are all naked.”

Earlier this year, Kampala’s Makerere University decided to impose a dress code for women at the institution. AfricaNews monitored Network Africa on BBC on Thursday morning and most Uganda women opposed the minister’s assertions.

“I wear miniskirts a lot. I am not comfortable in long skirts because I have nice legs. The only thing that makes me comfortable is a miniskirt. I don’t support it (ban), where are we going to put them because we have bought them and those selling it have paid taxes on them too,” young Sylvia stated.

The situation was not different in Ghana when AfricaNews interacted with some young university students for their views on the Uganda issue.

“That’s funny and strange. We are in a civilized world and people’s view and way of dressing should be respected. I think the men should respect themselves enough to control their eyes and feelings. I don’t dress to kill but dress to look good,” Jemima Boateng stated.

But others had more sympathy with minister Buturo. “I think skimpy things are not good. We are keeping the dignity of Africa as ladies and we have to cover ourselves up,” one woman, called Sharon, told the BBC.

Screw this shit! We want to see nice legs

  1. No, miniskirts rhymes with:<><>Flirts<>Dirts<>Desserts<> and<>Shirts.<><>But not with Nsaba Buturo.<><><>Now that I have finished being a wiseacre on Gug, Spartakuss, I have just confirmed that there are no existing laws in the penal code that would enable Nsabadabadoo to enforce a clothing regime. In short he really legally cannot legally tell people what to wear.<><>He was just wasting our time.

Msabadabadooo!! so much fun!!! baz!! <><>wait but isn’t there a law in the constitution on decency and protection of children’s innocence? ok maybe i should not be asking baz, i should be asking that sex pest pastor. yo! where the preachers at? CB, tell me now.!!<>i remember a certain Prof.Jjukko talking something about that.<>GUG:were you going for mini skirts-shorts material;Nsaba-mini brain? coz in that they rhyme.anything else, its just wack.


  3. Temugwayo! Why all the ire of mini skirts? Have you guys never been in an accident when the taxi driver saw a lady walking ‘almost naked’? Well, neither have I but I think the honourable minister has a point. We will all find it someday. Some day we will wake up and realise that mini skirts are actually detrimental to our health. In the meantime, keep talking about how funny the story is. Heh.
