Kenya women urged to dress decently to avoid violations
from MARIA MACHARIA in Nairobi, Kenya
NAIROBI – A LOCAL church leader condemned the recent stripping of woman in the Nairobi central district.
The head of the Jesus Winner Ministry in the capital city, Bishop Edward Mwai, denounced the incident but dissuaded women from dressing in a manner that would expose them to such acts.
“”I strongly condemn the act but please our sisters consider what you wear,” ” said Bishop Mwai.
The sentiments follow the public debate after a Nairobi woman was stripped for “dressing to kill.”
In the wake of the incident, traditional groups urged local women to dress “decently.”
They strongly condemned the alleged moral decay among Kenyan women, whom they accused of wearing revealing clothes to entice or seduce men.
“”The issue of human rights has killed our society. How can a woman walk stark naked in the street in this modern day where there are clothes? She invited trouble for herself.
“If she does not respect herself, then who will respect her? I call upon women to love their bodies by wearing decently. Wearing revealing clothes is openly inviting those men that are hungry for it to pounce on them,” said Own Kwamboka.
Meanwhile, women groups in the country are calling for a miniskirt protest in reaction to the stripping of their own sometime on Monday.
