Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has ordered that no woman in his country will neither be paraded nor allowed to expose her body as part of tourist attraction.
This was after the Ugandan Tourism Minister launched Miss curvy competition and said that the Government would add sexy women on Tourist Attraction list.
Speaking at the State House, on Thursday, February 7, while Museveni met investors he condemned the proposal to include curvy women in the list of tourism products to boost its rich industry.
The media reports the president clarified the initiative by State minister for Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda was not a cabinet decision neither is there any justification tourists will visit Uganda just to see ladies’ behinds.
“This was not a Cabinet decision. People should not come here to see women. I don’t like the idea that we are marketing our women for tourism. I have also seen the pictures of curvy women displaying themselves. One of those women in the photos is a sharp shooter,” he said.
President Museveni added that there is no need for women to explain what it takes to be beauty queen. (Quiin Abenakyo, Miss World Africa’s victory) is appreciated but not for the body.
“We should take time and look at this. I have my private view on all these but I haven’t discussed them. Certainly, I would not allow my grandchildren to show their body appearance. We are only encouraging Abenakyo to use her position as Miss World Africa to sell Uganda to the rest of the world,” he said.
