One of the concern chiefs of east Kwara’ae, Malaita province has raised concern over disrespectful dressing codes put on by young girls in east Kwara’ae recently.
This came after he had noticed that the girls’ habits of wearing what he termed as crack jeans which is disrespectful.
Chief Abraham Misitana said that this habit of wearing cut-out jeans, short trouser, and improper clothing is disrespectful and it needs quick address by churches, parents and other supportive people while it is still small.
He said that such way of dressing code has signal different mindset for girls though they (girls) thought that it was good for them in terms of climate conditions.
Mr Misitana said such practise is against the Kwara’ae culture and even the scripture.
He pointed out that disrespectful dressing can attract the opposite sex which may lead to further problems.
The chief said its important parents must teach the daughters to wear descent clothe which covered their bodies.
Meanwhile speaking to this paper, a girl from the concern area said that they have to wear those clothing because of the climate which is humid.
The girl who wanted her name withheld said that they don’t mean to attract boys but because they have the rights to choice which clothes to wear.
In response Mr Misitana while acknowledging the comments he added the plucking of eye brows and painting of lips sticks in such a hot country is not convincing enough and sends a different message.
