Poor dress code at the University of Eldoret has resulted in students being expelled.
The majority of students who reported at their respective lecture halls were dismissed for disobeying the new rule.
A student who spoke with Citizen TV claimed that he was rejected despite not having enough money to purchase new clothing.
“Nimerudishwa kwa sababu ya mavazi, na kwa sasa hivi sina pesa za kununua nguo nyingine,” he said
(I have been turned back due to my dressing, and for now, I don’t have money to buy new ones)
Another student agreed, claiming that most female students wore inappropriate attire to lectures.
“Unapata dem amevaa mini skirt, katumbo cut na amekuja class, io sio poa,” he said.
The institution made the announcement that students who are caught cross-dressing risk facing disciplinary action in an internal memo dated January 19.
According to the memo, female students who show off their bra straps or wear sleeveless t-shirts, ripped jeans, “tumbo-cut” blouses, or low-cut blouses and dresses will be subject to disciplinary action.
Male students are not allowed to wear sagging pants, clothing that reveals their breast, or ripped or torn jeans.
“All students are therefore advised to, at all times, desist from inappropriate dressing while at the university as this may warrant disciplinary action,” the dean said.
