Brenda Nanyonjo, the CEO Miss Uganda Foundation has opened up the recent saga between Anita Fabiola and Zari during the Miss Uganda grand finale.
While attending Comic Salvador’s ‘Just Comedy’ show launch on Wednesday last week, Nanyonjo revealed that being called Mama is a sign of high respect every mother should be proud of.
Nanyonjo was asked by comedian Emmah Napoleone to disclose to the huge comedy fans who had gathered for the show, what was exactly on her mind the time Zari ruined the whole event and took attention from the main course.
She said, “First of all, the only person that the Miss Uganda girls refer to as Mama and it’s a sign of respect, is me.”
“So, you don’t fear being called Mama? Asked Napoleone. She responded, “I am Mama and I am proud of it.
I don’t think it should be a problem, because I for one, even before I got married, even before I got my biological child, I was mentoring so many young Women in Uganda and if someone called me Mama, I wouldn’t feel any bad.
So, when you are a mother and someone accords you such respect, I think it’s something to be proud of and not to be absurd.”
When asked how she felt that moment the saga out shined the whole Miss Uganda crowning ceremony, she said that she decided to just ignore it for the sake of the new Queen.
“It felt bad, but I chose to ignore it because it’s a non issue, it was not about a specific person that time, it was about the new queen that was being crowned that’s why I have not given it attention.”
