The University of Eldoret, Uasin Gishu students were shocked on Monday after they were sent away for noncompliance with the new dress code policy introduced by the University.
A student’s dress code determined whether or not they could be admitted into the lecture halls.
“I have been turned away because of my dress code and currently I have no money to buy new clothes,” said Philip Maritim, one of the victims who termed the policy unfair.
However, some of the students are in support of the move, confirming that students dressed indecently attracts irrelevant attention.
An internal memo released by the institution warned learners of disciplinary action for wearing what the school termed as inappropriate clothes.
Mini skirts are among the banned attires for female students while male students with ragged or ripped trousers are also not tolerated.
The memo further stipulates that learners maintain gender compliant attires which should reflect their personal details as documented in their admission records.
