The Ministry of National Guidance and Religious Affairs has clarified that it is not considering introducing a National Dress Code as reported by the Zambia Daily Mail in its publication dated 13th January, 2020.
Ministry Public Relations officer Chibesa Musukwa says the Ministry is aware of the diverse culture that the country is endowed with and the civil and human rights that its people enjoy.
Mrs. Musukwa has told Christian voice news in a statement that Minister of National Guidance and Religious Affairs Godfridah Sumaili’s statement was misrepresented, as her comment was on the National Dress and NOT the Dress Code.
She said that the Minister was referring to the National Dress indicating that should there be need for one; the matter would require extensive consultations with various stakeholders.
Mrs. Musukwa has therefore urged Zambians to treat the debate on the National dress code as false.
