The Ugandan Ministry of Tourism has added curvy and sexy women to the list of tourism products.
While unveiling the initiative in Kampala on Wednesday, State minister for Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda, said a beauty pageant dubbed ‘Miss Curvy Uganda’ had been launched to select sexy curvaceous women. The finalists will be selected in June.
“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?” Mr Kiwanda said.
The beauty queens in sleek and revealing clothes, kept moving around Mestil Hotel pool side as they took photos with the event organisers including Mr Kiwanda on Wednesday.
Curvaceous women is the latest attraction the ministry hopes will increase revenue earnings.
Ms Ann Mungoma, the lead organiser for the beauty pageant, is optimistic that when these ladies flaunt their endowments, it will enhance the visibility and appreciation of Ugandan people.
“Miss Curvy is an event that will bring out the endowment of the real African woman. It is an exceptional event that will see young ladies showcase their beautiful curves and intellect,” said Ms Mungoma. Only those aged 18 and below 35 are eligible to participate, organisers said.
