Minister for Ethics and Integrity, Fr Simon Lokodo has threatened to cancel the freshly launched beauty pageant dubbed ‘Miss Curvy Uganda’ that seeks to select sexy curvaceous women in Uganda.
The beauty pageant that was launched by the state minister for Tourism Mr. Godfrey Kiwanda has so far attracted a social media backlash from women who sited that the contest looks at objectifying and belittling women to nothing.
Here, Fr. Lokodo called the event scandalous and shameful to the country. He even suggested that there are many other respectable strategies that the ministry can embark on to promote tourism in Uganda such as the natural beautiful features that don’t need much marketing.
Fr. Lokodo revealed that he was so surprised that ‘his brother’ Kiwanda had supported something of the sort.
My brother Kiwanda is misguided. This thing they are doing is very bad for the country. Uganda is a moral country. We have so many things we can use instead of women’s bodies.Fr Lokodo
He concluded by stating that such contests cannot happen because the thing will be telling young women to move out naked.
