West Pokot Governor John Lonyangapuo has banned female workers employed by the county from wearing mini-skirts and trousers to work.

According to a local media report, Governor Lonyangapuo has also instructed male workers to be exclusively wearing suits and ties while on official duty.

The governor, while addressing the workers, said some of the workers have been dressing “indecently” and making it difficult to differentiate genuine one from ghost workers.

“Miniskirts, halter tops and female trousers are not among preferred or acceptable attire. I will not accept (to have) my county officers to wear them,” said Mr Lonyangapuo.

His remarks elicited interesting reactions from Kenyans on Twitter who questioned the governor’s sense of priority.
