MASINDE MULIRO CRACKS DOWN ON INDECENT DRESSING.

According to an internal memo dispatched on Wednesday, the institution's Dean of Students Bernardatte Abwao, raised concerns over some of the learners increasing cases of indecent dressing .She noted that; those wearing micro/miniskirts, skin tights trousers, rugged, torn or ripped jeans, tumbo-cut blouses and t-shirts, low-cut blouses and dresses will not be allowed entry into the institution. The memo also cautioned female students against putting on micro shorts, transparent dresses, attire that shows their bra straps and sleeveless t-shirts.

The male students on the other hand, have been banned from wearing sagged trousers and clothing that reveals their chests .The banning also touched shoes like crocs, slippers and all kinds of plastic shoes.

 

STUDENTS' REACTIONS OVER THE SAME

Students seem to be uncomfortable concerning the banning of the above items. They were mostly affected by the ban of plastic shoes. Brian Omolo, a journalist student at the institution, who is also a male representative in the School of Arts and Social Sciences called on the administration to give students time before implementing some of the new rules. Another third year student said that while the institution is yet to welcome the move of banning mini-skirts, tumbo-cuts and other revealing attire, he feels that its harsh to prohibit students from wearing slippers and other plastic shoes. He however, called on the administration to consider extending the dates for some of the directives to enable some leaners to adhere to the new rules. On the same he also said that there are students from poor backgrounds who may find it difficult to acquire the required outfits and immediately adhere to the new rules.

MMUST also denied allegations that are imposed a ban on the aforementioned items. Professor Solomon Shibairo clarified that the memo advocating for decent dressing was not intended to prohibit indecent clothing among the students.  He also emphasized that the university cannot ban adult students from wearing specific attire in- stead their role is to provide guidance, encourage better clothing choices and request students to dress more decently.

On the other hand, James Wanyama who is a resident, however, lauded the administration for coming up with the new regulation which he said will promote morality and modesty at a higher level. He also said that, that was in line with the objectives of our institutions of higher learning which are geared to mold professionals with high standards of integrity.
