The miniskirt debate is back. And this time round, it is being conducted at the very top of the country’s legal fraternity. The emotive debate was revived this week after a new directive by the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) on members’ dress code. Last Wednesday, the LSK council released a revised dress code that bars female lawyers from wearing “revealing” clothes including sleeveless blouses and dresses. LSK secretary Apollo Mboya and chairman Eric Mutua said wearing of culottes, shorts and jeans is not allowed. Skirts must also be of dark colours and of at least knee length.
