Uganda: Minister Kiwanda Summoned to Parliament Over Miss Curvy Contest

MPs want Godfrey Kiwanda to shed more light on the controversial Miss Curvy beauty contest. The campaign to use “curvy women” to attract tourists to Uganda has been described as demeaning for women.

Parliament has asked the State Minister for Tourism, Godfrey Kiwanda to shade more light on the controversial Miss Curvy beauty contest.

This followed concerns by Budaka district woman MP, Pamela Kamugo who said that such a contest demeans women.

However some Members of Parliament seemed to be in support of Mr Kiwanda’s contest.

Opposition Chief Whip, Ibrahim Semujju Nganda chastised members of parliament against the contest saying they were the same people who asked Minister KIwanda to use reigning Miss World Africa, Quiin Abenakyo to promote tourism.
