MPs Label Sheebah and Cindy’s Attire as ‘Ungodly’

Monday, September 18, 2023

Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Ugandan Members of Parliament have criticized Cindy Sanyu and Sheebah Karungi’s attire during their music battle, describing it as “immodest” and “inconsistent with African values.” These legislators specifically referred to the attire as excessively revealing. These comments arose during a parliamentary evaluation of the music battle that occurred the previous Friday.

During the battle, the artists frequently wore outfits resembling swimsuits, covering very little of their bodies, including their chests, thighs, and upper body.

In response to this, the Members of Parliament have called upon the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance to provide guidance to the public, stating, “You should offer guidance to the people of Uganda before our society descends into immorality.”

Charles Onen, an MP from Gulu East, expressed his concerns, saying, “In my religion, only one thing is exposed—the blessed sacrament. However, today we see young women dressing in a manner that leaves little to the imagination. Their exposed breasts and underwear are causing damage to their reputations and future generations. Only the blessed sacrament should be exposed, not the human body.”

This debate over what constitutes nudity and the regulation thereof has long been a contentious issue among Ugandans. Some citizens have voiced their frustration with the Parliament’s focus on dress codes rather than more significant issues, such as government corruption, public fund misappropriation, and the need for better regulation of school fees, minimum wage, roads, and healthcare facilities.

To many, this discussion on attire seemed trivial compared to weightier concerns such as national security, tribalism, rising school fees, and healthcare.
