Kenya Methodist University (KeMU) has instituted a new dress code that forbids female students from wearing tumbo cuts, miniskirts, or other attire deemed inappropriate by the institution.
Female students who wear see-through clothing or body-hugging pants will be in violation of the newly implemented dress code, according to a January 5, 2022 memo from Dean of Students Dr. Esther Mbaabu.
“Tumbo cuts, bare back clothing, miniskirts, skirts and dresses whose slits are above the knee line, blouses whose necklines run down more than 4 inches, body tight trousers and see through clothes will be considered as inappropriate dressing.”
Male students are not permitted to wear earrings, dreadlocks, plaited hair, or walk around with untucked shirts.
Furthermore, they are not permitted to wear vests that expose their chests or hats in class or when visiting administrative offices.
Integrity in behavior, Maturity in behavior, Participation in Community Service, Peace-making, Conflict Resolution, and Responsible Dressing are all examples of Kemu Moral Values.
- Personal hygiene and good grooming
- Harmonious living with each other
- Good choice of friends (positive influence)
Earrings, dreadlocks, miniskirts, and untucked shirts are prohibited at Methodist University.
