Kenya Methodist University has publicly banned various outfits and fashions, citing that they will not accept them in the institution.
The school released a memo dated January 5, 2023, and signed by Dr. Esther Mbaabu, and the Dean of Students at the university, stating that male students at the institution are not allowed to have dreadlocks, plated hair, earrings, and wear untucked shirts.
“Vests that show bare chest, hats or caps in classes are also not allowed.”
Female students have been prohibited from wearing miniskirts among a wide range of other dressing styles that the institutions deem inappropriate.
Female students are also not allowed to wear tumbo cuts, bareback, miniskirts, body-tight trousers, and see-through clothes.
Skirts that are above the knee line and whose slit is above the knee line are also prohibited.
“Blouses with necklines that run down more than four inches,” a Statement warns.
“All university students are required to comply with the University code of dressing and wear appropriate attire during the study, at meal times in the dining hall, and in all university functions,” reads part of the memo.
