A university in northern Mozambique's northern Nampula province has banned workers, students and teachers from coming to the campus "improperly dressed." In a notice stuck on walls at Unizambeze university, administrators prohibit women from wearing: 
• Tight fitting clothes 
• Mini-skirts 
• Sleeveless tops 
• Cleavage-showing tops
• See-through cloths
• Slippers 
• Body tights 
• Ripped jeans and 
• Blouses showing bras. 
It also bans men from wearing:
• Vests
• Shorts 
• Ripped jeans 
• Low-waist trousers and 
• Slippers and 
• Plaiting their hair. 

Reaction to the ban has been mixed, but most people I spoke to said was "appropriate for the African culture" and an "important rule to ensure decency decent for a learning institution." 

The notice does not refer to dreadlocks, as we earlier reported.
