Hold carefully

"Kwata Bulungi Boarding Nnabo" (Miss, hold the folds well as you walk) The gomezi is a sumptuous traditional dress worn mainly by Baganda women and occasionally by women from other Ugandans tribes. The gomezi and its underskirt encourage a woman to take her time. She will clutch the sheeted material folds, lifting the fabric slightly, as she walks. Keeping a slow deliberate pace a woman looks elegant in her gomezi at any occasion.
