Tanzanian Singer Denied Govt Services for Wearing Skimpy Skirt
Singer Vanessa Mdee said that she was prohibited from entering a government building for wearing a skirt reaching her knees, prompting her to vent her frustrations on social media. "Only in Tanzania is my skirt which is at my knees too short to enter a public corporate building. This is incredible," wrote Mdee.
