Kampala - Students of Mbogo secondary school in central Uganda have burnt down their dormitories after being banned from wearing mini-skirts and tight trousers, destroying property worth millions of shillings.
According to one of the school teachers, Abbas Nulu, the school is Muslim-founded and students have never been allowed to wear short skirts and tight trousers.
He said that the headmaster recently confiscated short skirts from female students and tight boy's trousers and cut them into pieces.
''That annoyed students and they bought petrol which they used to burn the dormitories last night,'' he said.
He added that by the time fire brigade reached the school, the dormitories had been gutted down.
Police have said that some of the arrested students have confessed that they were involved in burning the dormitories.
