Prison boss directs female wardens to get rid of miniskirts

Female prison wardens have received a direct order from their boss to dress in proper uniforms when on duty.

The Deputy Commissioner General Prisons Mr F.K.Omundi made the announcement on Wednesday. He said most of the female prison wardens had violated the code of conduct when it comes to dressing.

Mr Omundi added that despite various warnings, some of the wardens continued violating the rule. He additionally said the prison officers should not wear tight skirts or those that went above the knee.

In a previous incident, a police officer received sanctions in 2014 after reporting to work in a tight and short skirt.

Male officers, on the other hand, must always remain well-groomed with short hair and a shaved beard.

Others required to maintain the cleanliness of the highest order include welfare officers, pregnant female officers, medical staff, and spiritual leaders.

Further, Mr Omundi issued a threat that those officers who will not observe the new regulations would face serious consequences.

The communication comes a week after the Inspector General of Police gave the same directive.
