When I was there in 2000, what struck me was how much more relaxed the local women were dressed as compared to Kenya - more short sleeved or sleeveless tops on women, for example, and more knee-length skirts as opposed to mid-calf. And no one ever looked askance at me trouble for wearing trousers there (I didn't wear shorts, as I find skirts cooler and more comfortable). Having said that, the only women I saw wearing trousers were students on the campus at Makerere University. I don't think anyone will have problems with you wearing shorts or pants if that's what you want to wear. However, I'd advise comfy skirts instead of shorts - I find them a cooler option, plus they can be dressed up for less casual wear.
