On Tuesday, the Deputy Prime Minister of Uganda Hon. Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga launched the Miss Curvy Africa 2022-23 campaign.

Returning for a second edition after a three-year hiatus, the Miss Curvy beauty pageant aims at ending stigmatization of plus-size women.

It was also a Uganda Tourism initiative to showcase Uganda’s vast beauty and attract more tourists into the country to increase revenue earnings.

Dispite the 2019 edition facing a lot of criticism over the objectification of women, the pageant is back and will include other African countries this time around.
