The Daily Mirror says Mujuru dismissed the rumour "as baseless and unfounded".


Zimbabwe's first female Vice President has been put on the defensive just under a month into her job after it was alleged she wanted to ban women from wearing trousers, mini skirts and hipsters. Joyce Mujuru who is currently the acting President in the absence of President Robert Mugabe, who is on leave, has denied she intended to propose legislation barring women from putting on trousers, mini skirts and hipsters, the privately owned Daily Mirror newspaper reported.

The paper said Zimbabwe's capital Harare was awash with rumours that Mujuru who led a campaign to ban beauty pageants in the 80s was soon to propose legislation to force women to dress-up. The Daily Mirror says Mujuru dismissed the rumour "as baseless and unfounded". “Mutemo rudzii wandisingazive? (What kind of a law is it that I am not aware of?),” Mujuru was quoted as saying.

The rumour was more rife at commuter omnibus stations, where touts could be seen ridiculing women putting on trousers, mini skirts and hipsters. Some touts, according to the paper, were heard shouting: “This is going to end on January 1 when Mujuru acts and you will be true African women.”

In the 1980s, Mujuru who was then minister of women affairs, stopped the staging of beauty pageants.
