Zambia ‘bans miniskirts for policewomen’
Female police officers in Zambia have been ordered to stop wearing miniskirts while on duty in order to protect the professional standing of the force, the state-owned Zambia Daily Mail newspaper reports.
The directive was issued by police assistant director for legal and professional standards, Charity Chanda, who said the Zambia Police Service had a prescribed length for women’s uniforms.
“What is the length of your skirt if you are a female police officer? We have seen many female officers wear miniskirts as uniform,” she is quoted as saying at an event on Tuesday.
