Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni is not a hundred compeletely happy with Miss World Africa 2018, Quiin Abenakyo.
This came to the fore after Museveni met the Ugandan born Abenakyo at State House, Entebbe, shortly after her arrival from China.
He stated that even though he was happy for the milestone the newly crowned beauty queen had achieved, he had one concern about her.
“Abenakyo is indeed a tall, beautiful Musoga girl, my only concern is that she was wearing Indian hair. We must show African beauty in its natural form,” he added: “Again, I congratulate Muzukulu Abenakyo on this feat,” wrote Museveni.
The Head of State Nonetheless, lauded the Miss Uganda’s parents for raising her with values.
“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,” added Museveni.
According to the President, 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.
“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.”
Museveni’s admiration for natural hair is nothing new. His wife Janet Kataaha spots short hair- a style shared by Kenya’s First Lady Margaret Kenyatta and Rwanda’s Jeannette Nyiramongi Kagame.
Abenakyo, who was crowned Miss Uganda 2018/19 in August, rose to global fame when she won the continental crown in the Miss World 2018 contest.
She also became the first Miss Uganda to make it to the top five finalists in the Miss World contest.
Vanessa Ponce of Mexico was crowned Miss World 2018.
