London, Oct 16 : Teenage tribal girls have been ordered to cover up during traditional dances - because pervert tourists keep taking pictures of their bare bums.
Centuries old Zulu Royal Reed Dance had thousands of young virgins performing in front of their king so he can pick his wives.
Earlier the girls used to wear beads and short-fringed skirts as a proud display of their virginity, reports The Sun.
But the girls eventually turned out to be models for lecherous Europeans in the 25,000-strong crowds who "zoom in on bare flesh with their hi-tech cameras", according to locals in Nongoma, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
However, now the King Goodwill Zwelithini has ordered the girls to wear sarongs or underwear, saying that the event "is not for looking at maidens' bottoms".
While many dancers are upset with the move, women's groups argue the semi-nudity put other girls off taking part.
