Ugandan government seeks mini-skirt ban

(CNN) -

A new anti-pornography law is up for debate in Uganda.

It would impose bans on what can be shown on T-V and in the movies in the African nation.  The law would also limit what women can wear.

If it is passed, wearing a mini-skirt would become a crime.

The ban was proposed by Uganda's ethics minister, a former Catholic priest.

He says 90-percent of the parliament is on his side, but the public is somewhat divided.

"Mini-skirt" is being defined as any skirt with a hem above the knee.

Violators would face thousands of dollars in fines and up to 15-years in jail.
