Several Ugandans have taken to social media to express their disappointment with the latest initiative by the country’s tourism ministry, which unveiled curvaceous women as a product that can attract visitors to the East African nation.

On Tuesday, the state minister for tourism, Godfrey Kiwanda launched a new beauty pageant dubbed ‘Miss Curvy Uganda’ which he described as a contest to to select sexy curvaceous women that will promote Uganda as a destination.



“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?” Kiwanda said.

The reactions from Ugandans online and activists were quick, pointing out that this new initiative objectifies women’s bodies as sex objects.

A petition to have the pageant cancelled has been started, and is gathering steam.

“I personally feel attacked. This is degrading of women. In a country where women are grabbed by men while walking on the streets and now they have legalized it by making them tourist attractions is not fair,” said Primrose Murungi, who started the petition.

“They are objectifying us and reducing women to nothing. Please sign this petition for ministry of tourism to take down the miss curvy challenge and offer an apology to the public as well.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed an order simplifying the procedure for obtaining a Russian passport for residents of the rebel-controlled Donetsk and Luhansk regions of eastern Ukraine, the Kremlin said on Wednesday.

Separatist rebellions broke out against Ukrainian rule in both regions in 2014. Moscow provided military help for the separatists, according to evidence gathered by Reuters, though Russian officials have denied providing material support.

Large swathes of the two regions are now under the de facto control of the Moscow-backed rebels, while Kiev says it is determined to re-assert its control, a position backed by most Western countries.

There was no immediate reaction from Kiev to Putin’s order. Ukrainian officials are likely to react angrily to any indication Moscow is drawing the rebel regions closer into its own orbit.
