Mini-skirt motion unconstitutional

08 April 2014, 21:04

Kilifi - The Kilifi county assembly speaker has had the controversial dress code motion deemed unconstitutional.

Jimmy Kahindi said the motion which had intended to outlaw the wearing of miniskirts by women and sagging of pants by men had no legal basis in law and would therefore not submitted for debate in the Kilifi county assembly.

“The proposed law was undermining the fundamental human rights and had no any basis in law we will not proceed with the motion” said Kahindi

The controversial motion was introduced by the Marafa ward representative Renson Kambi in a bid to curb the rising immorality at the coastal town which is a major tourist hub.

Kambi had defended the motion stating that it initially intended to address the decline of educational standards by regulating dress code among the young generation.

The speaker said the motion was well intentioned but noted that passing such a motion would result into an illegality as it contravened in the article 44 of the Kenyan constitution.

“There is no law in place to limit the practice of any culture by an individual as this is a matter of choice”,said Kahindi.
