Skirting The IssueNsaba Buturo, the ethics and integrity minister of Uganda, is calling for a ban on the wearing of miniskirts because they can cause traffic accidents. Buturo told reporters: "What's wrong with a miniskirt? You can cause an accident because some of our people are weak mentally." Buturo also claims that wearing a short skirt is akin to being naked and should be considered "indecent," which would make it punishable under Ugandan law. [BBC]
