Uganda Curvy Women Pageant to promote Tourism

Uganda’s minister of Tourism has come up with a new initiative of making curvy and sexy women pageant to be one of the events that bring tourists to Uganda.

The contest event was unveiled in Kampala yesterday at the Mestil Hotel in Nsambya. While addressing the press, the state minister of Tourism, Ho. Ssuubi Kiwanda said the beauty contest named the Miss Curvy Uganda has been championed to choose bodacious and curvaceous women and the finalists will be announced in June.

“We have naturally endowed nice looking women that are amazing to look at. Why don’t we use these people as a strategy to promote our tourism industry?” Mr Kiwanda wondered, pointing at “a sample” of beautiful women at the press conference yesterday.

The beauty queens in sleek and revealing clothes, kept moving around Mestil Hotel pool side as they took photos with the event organisers including Mr Kiwanda.

Tourism is a top foreign exchange earner for Uganda and the country last year earned $1.4b (Shs5 trillion) from the sector, according to government statistics.

Most tourists visit Uganda to tour national parks for diverse wildlife species such as gorillas, birds and other animals. They also love viewing the River Nile, crater lakes and mountains, among others.

Curvaceous women as a product, is the latest attraction the ministry hopes to attract more tourists and increase revenue earnings.

Ms Ann Mungoma, the lead organiser for the beauty pageant, is optimistic that when these ladies flaunt their endowments, it will enhance the visibility and appreciation of Ugandan people.

“Miss Curvy is an event that will bring out the endowment of the real African woman. It is an exceptional event that will see young ladies showcase their beautiful curves and intellect,” said Ms Mungoma. Only those aged 18 and below 35 are eligible to participate, organisers said.

Asked if the pageant does not offend the conservative culture of Ugandan society, Mr Kiwanda said Uganda has long appreciated smaller bodied women as a hallmark of beauty and the curvy pageant is just another campaign aimed at appreciating beauty in diversity.
