ALLOW me some space in your reputable paper to air my concerns on dressing in Zambia especially among our young girls and some women.

Of late we have read of young girls being stripped naked by some call boys in town based on what they call indecent dressing.

While I appreciate that to look cute and presentable,our young women and indeed our ladies ought to move with fashion,in this modern times,but fashion must have limits!

It is unfortunate that the same call boys that go on rampage stripping helpless girls,are themselves wearing shorts that reveal their pants and no one seem to care!  They call it sagging.

It is not only our young girls whose dressing raises questions,even my fellow old women have been spotted wearing questionable attire which shows some body parts to the the general public.

I write to make a passionate appeal to our dear mothers and children to be wary of what they wear,as what we dress speaks volumes of our character.

Some body parts of a woman are so precious that only the husband or husband to be should see them,but alas,we see our dear women walking shamelessly in public with their pants showing!

Any sane man would not put Diamond in wheelbarrow for all to see because it is very expensive -the body of woman!

Women must be the role models to our young girls as children spend more time with their mothers and teachers.

In this vein I also wish to make an appeal to our educators to dress in the manner that is befitting to a teacher,as children look up to them as “loco in parentus”together we can control this moral decay of “indecent” dressing and issues of stripping of girls will be a thing of the past.

May help to develop the girl child so that they take over from the likes of Inonge Wina,Chritine Kaseba ,Stela Libongani and many such leaders.




  1. I concur with you madam. Good article for those who have ears. But one thing which makes me wonder is is our women bodies who support careless dressing and have no voice on defiled girl-children. If a female is undressed for careless dressing, they up in arms – which means they condone careless dressing than helping to protect defiled and raped girl children and women.
