A Ugandan court clerk was on Thursday suspended from work by the Public Service Permanent Secretary, Josephine Muwonge for ‘indecent dressing.’
Rosemary Namuwanga was relieved of her duties as a clerk and interpreter at the Kasangati Magistrate Court in Wakiso.
According to Daily Monitor, Rosemary went against the public service standing order.
“Muwonge faulted Namuwanga for defying public service standing order by dressing in a manner that does not portray a good image of the judiciary and public service image,” the agency said.
In the letter dated September 21, Ms Namuwanga was dressed in a very short and tight dress which, by description, did not fall within the generally acceptable standards of the established Notice NO.1 of 2017.
“You turned up dressed in a manner that does not portray a good image of the Judiciary and Public Service at large,” the letter read in part.
She was suspended for a period of two weeks starting 21 September to October 4, 2017.
The Public Service has apparently suspended six other civil servants following a ban on tight, transparent and sleeveless clothing.
“All clothing is expected to cover the cleavage, navel and the back while sleeveless and transparent blouses and dresses were banned.”
The civil servants have also been banned from putting on flat shoes or colouring their hair.
