Church of Uganda condemns proposed Miss Curvy Uganda contest
The Church of Uganda has condemned the proposed Miss Curvy Uganda contest. This comes amid calls from women rights activists for the state minister of Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda to resign following his launch of the “Miss Curvy Women” contest, in an effort to boost tourism of the country.
In a statement issued this morning, the archbishop of the Church of Uganda His Grace Stanley Ntagali says the church condemns the proposed beauty pageant calling for its cancellation.
His Grace Ntagali says such a contest brings shame upon families and the country and is a demonstration of how low the country has fallen and as such cannot be accepted.
Minister Kiwanda however maintains that the contest is not immoral but rather to appreciate who we are as a country.
