Uganda bans miniskirts as MPs pass anti-pornography bill
London : The Ugandan parliament has passed an anti-pornography measure banning miniskirts and other clothing considered to be sexually explicit, a media report said.
The new legislation bans anything that shows sexual parts of a person such as breasts, thighs, buttocks or any erotic behaviour intended to cause sexual excitement or any indecent act or behaviour tending to corrupt morals, The Independent reported Thursday. The parliamentary measure, which needs the president’s approval before becoming a law, has been brought in as it was felt that there has been an increase in pornography in the south-eastern African country.
