Ugandan Civil Servant Face Clothing Ban And Restrictions...

The Ministry for Public Service in Uganda has directed public servants to dress “decently”, and has warned women not to show their cleavage, wear short skirts, sleeveless blouses and long hair.


Women’s pant-suits are allowed, but female public servants will not wear any tight-fitting clothing.
Flat, open shoes are also ruled out, except in cases where one can prove that it is for medical reasons.

The circular further states that accessories should be modest and women should not have bright hair colour, braids or extensions.
Men are required to wear neat, long-sleeved shirts, jackets and ties, trousers that are not tight, keep their hair short and neat, and also not wear brightly-coloured clothes.

The circular is derived from Public Service Standing Orders on dress-code, put in place in 2010.
However, the dress-code does not seem to have been paid much attention until now.
