President Yoweri Museveni has told the new crowned Miss World Africa Quiin Abenakyo to stop wearing Indian hair as a way of showing African beauty in its natural form.
The president made the request on Wednesday as Abenakyo paid a courtesy call to him at State House Entebbe.
“Abenakyo is indeed a tall, beautiful Musoga girl. My only concern is that she was wearing Indian hair. I encourage her to keep her natural, African hair. We must show African beauty in its natural form,” he said.
Museveni also commended the beauty queen for being true definition of beauty with brains.
“I congratulate our muzukulu on these accolades and also salute her for recently completing her university degree course. She is a true definition of beauty coupled with brains. She is also specifically focusing on helping young girls lead responsible, healthy lifestyles,” he noted.
Adding, “I must commend Abenakyo’s parents for raising her with values. Many young people today rush into promiscuity and ruin their lives, yet a little patience and completing school would give them a foundation on which to enjoy the rest of their lives with their spouses.
Meanwhile, the president revealed that government will support the Miss Uganda Foundation.
