Mutula under heat from church

23 July 2012, 09:34 Samuel Kisika

The church has dismissed the wearing of miniskirt uniforms by high school girls as proposed by Minister of Education saying that this would erode the society’s morality.

Speaking on recently at Bungoma Cathedral Parish, Father Chrispinus Wekhanya and his Kibabii parish counterpart, Martin Wanyama said that miniskirts for school girls would interfere with their learning and even drive male teachers into affairs them.

“We the church insists on abstinence among youths, morality and purity of mind but allowing our school girls to wear miniskirts shows that we’re encouraging  immorality in the name of modernity,” said Father Wekhanya.

On the other hand Father Wanyama said that the girls should dress properly like Muslim girls do, to reduce rape cases resulting from their own fault of exposing their nudity claiming to be modern fashion.

The two priests insisted that for a long time, miniskirts have been associated with promiscuity and prostitution which should not be embraced in schools as this would also compel school boys to demand for their own likable dressing codes.

Wanyama suggested that instead of Education Minister Mutula Kilonzo allowing girls to wear miniskirts, “he would have looked into the implications of the matter first in terms of the society’s values, dignity respect and ethical school rules.”

The priests further warned parents against allowing their children to engage in unethical modern practices that are contrary to the church’s and society’s well-laid down laws.

They blamed the government for assigning members of parliament in Ministries they are not fit to manage as required by their relevant academic specialization.
