With the most recent adjustments, students at Moi University will now need to abide by a new dress code.
The dean of students at the university, Alice Mutai, voiced concerns about indecency she saw around campus in an internal memo dated Tuesday, February 6, 2024.
She subsequently announced that the school will be proceeding with a strict dress code that bans clothing such as mini skirts, skin-tight trousers, ragged or ripped jeans, tumbo-cut blouses or t-shirts and low-cut blouses or dresses.
The school also banned clothing such as sagging trousers, clothing that reveals the chest, slippers, crocs, micro shorts and transparent dresses or attires that show bra straps or sleeveless t-shirts and t-shirts with obscene writing.
Other banned items include; plastic shoes that are not official wear.
“I wish to bring to your attention Article 3.1.1 a, c, d and e of the Rules and Regulations Governing the Conduct & Discipline of Students. The students are expected to dress decently in modest and appropriate attire. However, we have observed and noted with concern the indecent dressing by some of you,” part of the memo read in parts.
Conclusively, the dean directed the institution’s staff members not to serve students who defy the directives.
She also affirmed that strict disciplinary action will be taken against students caught defying the code of conduct.
“All students should desist from inappropriate dressing while at the University as this may result in disciplinary action. This is therefore to request all Students to dress decently and Staff are requested not to serve students who are dressed indecently,” she stated.
