Dreadlocks

 
     
 

Here is another fresh bit of information .

 It has now been decreed that dreadlocks are not an allowed form of hairstyle, and all women must not wear trousers or slacks, only dresses or skirts.

Police are enforcing this new "regulation" in Bulawayo and Harare as I write this.

This is just like the Banda era in Malawi! Anyone black women who are wear slacks or trousers or jeans are being told that this is not the Zimbabwean way but the western way and Zimbabwean who is caught with dreadlocks are taken and are having their heads shaved being told that this is not the Zimbabwean way they are not Jamaican. Surely this is a violation of human rights !!
