Ugandan High school where both boys and girls wear 'skirts'| WTF

Nyakasura secondary school in Uganda has stirred mixed reactions online after photos of their both male and female students were spotted wearing skirts. The school has raised eyebrows as many are wondering how men can proudly wear skirts and feel comfortable. However, it has been discovered that they are not actually skirts but kilts.

Their principal’s say

The principal has come out to defend the school claiming boys were kilts. Kilts is a Scottish traditional attire that was worn by men.


He revealed that the school was founded in 1926 by Ernest William Calwell, a Scottish missionary who settled in the area during the colonial period.

“They are not skirts they are called Kilt as garment resembling a skirt traditionally worn by men in the Scottish culture,” he said.

“This school has a great history but the history is linked to Scotland and Colwell came to this area because of disagreements because he wanted to introduce this to schools but people called the skirts but they are not skirts they are called kilts.”
