President Yoweri Museveni has hailed Miss World, Africa, Quinn Abenakyo, for promoting Uganda and Africa respectively and for reasserting her African Identity.
Abenakyo was crowned Miss World- Africa 2018 at the just concluded 68th edition of Miss World in Sanya, China.
President Museveni together with the First Lady Janet Kataha Museveni on Saturday evening hosted Abenakyo to a dinner at their country home in Rwakitura, Kiruhura district. Abenakyo was accompanied to the dinner by a government delegation led by the Minister of State for Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda Ssubi, the Chairman of the Uganda Tourism Board Daudi Migereko, her father Charles Sembera, her mother Alice Kyamulesire, close relatives and Miss Uganda Foundation Chief Executive Officer Brenda Nanyonjo.
President Museveni said that he was happy that Quinn Abenakyo had re-asserted her African Identity when this time round she had her natural hair contrary to when she visited him recently at State House Entebbe.
“I congratulate Miss Africa for re-asserting her African Identity in the form of her hair being natural because there is nothing to add on or subtract on the African beauties, God made it and there is nothing to add or subtract,” he said.
Quinn Abenakyo presented to the President a medal and trophy that she won when she came third-runners up and crowned Miss World Africa during the recently concluded Miss World beauty contest held in China.
Abenakyo who completed her Bachelors degree in Business Computing at Makerere University Business School (MUBS) this year charmed judges and viewers world-wide when she talked about her support for the girl-child in her project “Fighting Teenage Pregnancies”.
