Kenyan women flaunt bodies, don miniskirts in strip demo

17 November 2014, 15:55 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Women in Nairobi donned mini-skirts, flaunted their bodies in protest over recent incidences of stripping in the country.

The women stormed the city of Nairobi Monday in protest over incidences in which women have been stripped naked in the city due to what has been called indecent dressing.

Carrying banners and signing freedom songs, the women from all walks of life paraded more than just their anger on the day.

Most wore short skirts, others revealing tops and more, as they vowed to wear what they like whenever they like.

Led by former presidential candidate and businesswoman Esther Passaris, they paraded their 'wears' in the streets, under the campaign My Dress My Choice.

" It is our right and no one will deny us our constitutional rights," Passaris shouted during the procession.

The procession moved through the city streets, onto the Supreme Court and then Uhuru Park in Nairobi.

Prominent activists, media personalities and socialites all attended the protest march.

Well known blogger and activist Boniface Mwangi also wore a skirt in solidarity with the women.

" It is unfortunate that we have such incidences in this day and age. They must be stopped," he said.

Female MPs and former presidential candidate Martha Karua have criticized the actions.

The stripping incidences started last week in Nairobi, with a woman being stripped for allegedly dressing poorly, with a second taking place over the weekend and a third in Mombasa in the last few days.

The Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko has already ordered a probe into the spate of strippings in the country, saying they are against common sense and moral and acts.
