Ripped Jeans and Mini Skirts? You Have No Place In A Nairobi Church
St Peter Claver’s Catholic Church in Nairobi has sternly warned the congregations from putting on some certain attires that are “inappropriate” to church.
Some of the attires banned include dresses with slits, rugged jeans, miniskirts, t-shirts inscribed ‘Red Devil’, crop tops, caps, sunglasses, chains, clothing that exposes arms and sagged trousers according to Daily Nation.
However, when the rules are broken, the punishment that will follow this is not yet known. Attempts have been made by the news agency to get across to the church administration with no result.
This is not a strange thing in Nigeria. There are lists of churches in Nigeria who also frown against some certain form of dressings as they are seen to cause distractions in the presence of God.
The question that comes to mind is if issues like these should be a priority for the church or not.
In Kenya, around half the population are Christians, 10% Muslim and there are small Hindu and Sikh minorities.
