Swaziland Police Ban ‘molest-Provoking’ Miniskirts

Women in Swaziland risk arrest if they wear miniskirts or tops which expose part of their stomach as they will be violating moral standards, a police spokesperson has said.



“The act of a rapist is made easy, because it would be easy to remove the half-cloth worn by the women,” Wendy Hleta was quoted as saying.

Offenders face a six-month jail term under the ban, which invokes a colonial criminal act dating back to 1889.

The ban also applies to low-rise jeans.
“They will be arrested,” she said.
Hleta said women wearing revealing clothing were responsible for assaults or molests committed against them.

“I have read from the social networks that men and even other women have a tendency of ‘undressing people with their eyes’. That becomes easier when the clothes are hugging or are more revealing,” Hleta said.

Traditional costumes
However, the ban does not apply to traditional costumes worn by young women during ceremonies like the annual Reed Dance, where the ruling King Mswati III chooses a wife.

The monarch already has 13 wives.
During the ceremony, beaded traditional skirts worn by young bare-Bosom ed virgins cover only the front, leave the back exposed. Underwear is not allowed.

The law was enforced after a march by women and young girls last month calling for protection against a spate of molests in the impoverished kingdom, almost entirely surrounded by South Africa.

AS IF THAT IS THE PROBLEM.  DON'T PEOPLE RAPE WOMEN WHO WEAR JEANS PANTS.
A RAPIST IS A LOW-LIFE CRIMINAL........IT IS NOT DEPENDENT ON THE DRESS WOMEN WEAR.
