Female Civil Servants Banned from ‘Breast Display’ in New Government Policy

Any act of direct or indirect breast display will

no longer be tolerated in the Ugandan civil service following a new policy introduced.
Public servants in Uganda are facing a strict dress code after the government issued a circular, warning them to “dress decently”.

The guidelines which were issued by the Ministry of Public Service warns against erring workers who do not comply and to all non-uniformed civil servants.

Female workers have been told not to show any cleavage, wear bright colour braids or hair extensions, sleeveless blouses or any clothing made out of see-through material.

Men must wear long-sleeve shirts, jackets and ties, and loose trousers. Women were advised to wear dresses and skirts that fall below the knee although they are allowed to wear pant-suits.

The circular which was culled from Public Service Standing Order on dress code further states that accessories should be modest, and women should not have bright hair colour, braids or extensions.
