The President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, is displeased that African Beauty queens always wear artificial hairs instead of their natural hair.
Museveni made his reservations after observing the hairstyle of Queen Abenakyo who won the Miss World Africa in China after she visited him.
Abenakyo had visited the president upon her return from China, where, she had gone to represent her country in the Miss World pageant, which held on December 8.
In his tweet, the President said: “Abenakyo is indeed a tall, beautiful Musoga girl. My only concern is that she was wearing Indian hair. I have encouraged her to keep her natural, African hair. We must show African beauty in its natural form.”
Abenakyo, on arrival, was received at the Entebbe International Airport on Wednesday by the Tourism state minister Godfrey Kiwanda. He took her to visit Museveni and the First Lady.
She emerged the second runner-up and thus, the continental winner.
Abenakyo is a computer science student at Makerere university business school based in Nakawa. The 22-year-old Abenakyo, hails from Mayuge District in eastern Uganda.
She won the Miss Uganda on 10 August 2018.
