Blog: Miniskirt alert in Uganda

Joe Ayling | 18 September 2008

A Ugandan politician has identified a new type of road hazard in the African country - in the form of a miniskirt.

According to a report by the BBC, Uganda's ethics and integrity minister Nsaba Buturo says that a growing number of women wearing miniskirts are distracting "mentally weak" drivers there and causing accidents.

"What's wrong with a miniskirt? You can cause an accident because some of our people are weak mentally," he is quoted as saying.

Buturo's comments triggered laughter amongst Ugandan press, and journalists in the just-style office were equally amused at the miniskirt madness.

After all, surely there's an argument they contribute to the scenery?
