#BBCtrending: Twitter storm over Kenyan policewoman's 'tight' skirt
A policewoman's uniform in Kenya has caused a social media storm. Kenyans on Twitter are outraged after Corporal Linda Okello was reprimanded for wearing a tight skirt. Thousands tweeted their messages of support using the hashtag #KenyansForLindaOkello.
It's not the first time police uniforms have hit the headlines in Kenya. Last year police were barred from wearing lipstick and big earrings while on duty as it was considered "unprofessional". The move angered MPs who said it was "archaic and extreme".
