Despite coming with mixed reactions, the miss Curvy Uganda pageant is yet not to face any set back to prevent it from happening. We have learnt that more than 140 ladies have so far registered for the contest that will see one of them being crowned as the most endowed woman in the country.
Though supported by some, the initiative that was launched last week by the state minister for Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda Suubi has caused a backlash as many say it is introducing sex tourism to the country.
However, according to Anne Mungoma, the Chief Executive officer of the ‘Miss Curvy’ Uganda says that she is disappointed towards the negativity that people are attaching to the beauty contest, saying it’s aimed at appreciating beauty queens with the Natural plus size.
“The whole miss curvy contest has been Miss understood, but we want to a sure you that it’s only a beauty pageant to empower the curvy women.” Miss Mungoma said.
She also added that the event is meant to show the world that Uganda is endowed with natural African Women who can promote tourism as well.
