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.
