This was all over the news in 2014....Found this one in 2017...not sure where it is now! The odd thing was i recently had a friend there, he was saying that the mini-skirt was quite commonly worn around in Kampala.

Not sure!

But in general, I've heard that much of Africa is quite conservative when it comes to clothing attire. Shorts are not acceptable for men, in much of this part of the world either. Gays face imprisonment, and so forth.

This also generated discussion in the neighoring countries:

When I was in Afrrca (70s}, topless women were quite common, but a waist-tied wrap had to cover the ankles. Each culture has its own proprieties

True about that. When I used to teach English in South Korea in the 1990s...a female foreigner wearing a shirt that showed the shoulders, was immediately sent home to change their attire.

Meanwhile the Korean staff had the most mini of mini-skirts. Legs up to the panties was absolutely fine. You'd never see their shoulders though. Those were not to be exposed.
