- A police woman’s uniform has caused a stir in Zambia
- Her outfit was thought to be indecent and this has led to some serious issues
A Zambian police woman has broken the internet with the uniform she wore. The young woman’s outfit was thought to be awkward and indecent for the force.
Esther Mwaata Katongo, the police spokesperson, has addressed the issue and condemned the indecent dressing attire of the female officer of Sesheke.
Unfortunately, the picture of the officer had gone viral on the social media and this seemed to complicate matters the more.
According to Katongo, the policy does not accommodate female officers wearing mini skirts and if they have to, only skirts that pass the knee are allowed.
"Our policy is at least knee length no officer take the tailors to reduce the size. We attribute this to poor supervision by supervisors. They need to ensure that officers are modest in their dressing and are smart. A uniform is not for modelling," Katongo says.
She also revealed that the supervisor of the officer in Sesheke has been called in order for the matter to be addressed.
"Officers should always be decent in their dressing and help in portraying the good image of the institution. Their skirts should at least be knee high as opposed to what is in the picture," says the police spokesperson.
However, the Facebook post made by Mwebantu revealed that some people are on the officer’s side. They think there is nothing wrong with her outfit.
