Kampala (Uganda) - Women face 10 years in jail for mini-skirts

Women wearing minis-skirts or showing cleavages, if arrested and found guilty, will be charged sh10m or imprisoned for not more than 10 years, according to the new anti-pornography law which President Yoweri Museveni has approved.

The Anti-pornography Act, 2014, which criminalises indecency and promotion of pornography, also provides the court with the option of sentencing the culprit to both punishments.

Addressing the press at the Media Centre in Kampala yesterday (Tuesday), ethics and integrity minister Simon Lokodo said the President assented to the Bill a fortnight ago on February 6. This after Parliament passed the Bill in December last year.
