Following the implementation of a new dress code rules by the university on Monday, students at the University of Eldoret, Uasin Gishu received a surprise.
Due to non-compliance with the clothing code, dozens of students who arrived at the college were sent home.
You could only enter the lecture halls if you were appropriately dressed.
Many who were caught off guard described the action as unfair.
Philip Maritim said, “I’ve been turned away because of my dress code and right now I don’t have money to buy new clothes.
Denis Kiplagat, a second student, agreed that the new dress code regulations were a good idea but urged the university to give them more time to comply.
Some students agree with the institution’s choice to impose a clothing code on students at the school.
“You find a lady in class attracting all the attention wearing a miniskirt and a ‘tumbo cut,'” Stephen Maina said.
Another student, Edna Moraa, added, “I am okay with the new attire code and encourage my follow pupils to follow and do the same.
The internal message, which Citizen Digital obtained, cautioned students that wearing what the school deemed unacceptable clothing would result in disciplinary punishment.
Mini skirts are among the prohibited clothing for female students, and ragged or torn pants for male students will prevent them from entering the schools.
Additionally, The letter also mandates that students wear clothing that is appropriate for their gender and that accurately represents the information about them that is listed in their admission records.
