The Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University (ZEGU) has issued a dress code for students to ensure proper dressing.

 

In a statement, the ZAOGA run institution’s Registrar L Chinyemba said the new dress code was to ensure students wore decent and comfortable dressing.

 

“Tight clothes which include skin tights and leggings, miniskirts or cuts off, shorts, tops that expose cleavages, crop tops, back outs and see throughs are not allowed at campus,” he said.

“Students must be decently dressed especially in classes, church services and any other University related off campus functions.”

 

Chinyemba said improperly dressed students would be barred from entering lecture rooms and exams rooms.

 

“Lecturers can bar students from attending lectures if they are not dressed appropriately,” he said.

Babra Mangwiro Mudzanapabwe   Religion is obsessed with policing women’s bodies… nothing new here! The tragedy is that people actually send their children to these institutions… tragic!”

 

 

Mandi Maodzwa     Institutionalisation of misogyny which leads to abuse of women.”

Cathrine Mkwesha   Problem is these institutions are being run nevanhu vanofanira vava kumba vazorora zvavo vachitamba nezvizukuru. I was surprised kuti certain individuals who were Deans kwataivawo makare kare are still there. When I joined that institution they were old, so vachiri kuiteiko ikoko. Those are the ones sitting vachiisa such archaic laws.:

  • I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this specific problem and it does indeed supply me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. However, through what I have witnessed, I basically hope when the actual commentary pile on that people today stay on point and don’t start on a tirade involving some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this excellent point and though I do not concur with the idea in totality, I respect the standpoint.
