President Yoweri Museveni has rebuked Miss Africa Quiin Abenakyo for wearing fake Indian hair rather than being a natural African woman.
Museveni said this on Wednesday after meeting Quiin Abenakyo who paid him a courtesy visit at State House Entebbe. Abenakyo had just returned from Europe where she emerged the third best in the recently concluded Miss World beauty contest, making her Miss Africa- the first accolade to be bagged by a Ugandan in the history of the world beauty pageant.
Museveni took to his twitter and congratulated Abenakyo for flying Ugandan flag higher, but blasted her for wearing non-African hair which he treasures most.
“Abenakyo is indeed a tall, beautiful Musoga girl. My only concern is that she was wearing Indian hair. I have encouraged her to keep her natural, African hair. We must show African beauty in its natural form,” Museveni said.
He however vowed that his government will henceforth the Miss Uganda Foundation.
“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. 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,” he said.
It is fashionable that most employees at State House who are so close to Museveni including ministers have adopted short African hair.
