Nairobi church ‘bans miniskirts and ripped jeans’

A church in Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, has warned its congregants against wearing “inappropriate church attire”, the Daily Nation newspaper reports.

St Peter’s Claver Catholic Church in the city centre has hung a notice on its entrance with photos of 10 kinds of clothing that should not be worn by worshippers.

They include miniskirts, dresses with slits, ripped jeans, T-shirts inscribed “Red Devil”, crop tops, caps, sunglasses, chains, clothing that exposes arms and sagged trousers.

It is not clear what measures the church will take against congregants who defy the ban.
