President Museveni yesterday hosted Quiin Abenakyo, the current Miss Uganda and now Miss World Africa at State House Entebbe.
While there, Museveni congratulated her for winning the Miss Africa crown and saluted her for recently completing her university degree course.
“I congratulate our muzukulu on these accolades and also salute her for recently completing her university degree course. She is a true definition of beauty coupled with brains.”
However, Mr. Museveni’s concern was that she was wearing Indian hair and urged her to keep her natural African hair.
“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,” he said.
The President also thanked Abenakyo’s parents for raising their daughter with good morals and values.
“I must commend Abenakyo’s parents for raising her with values. Many young people today rush into promiscuity and ruin their lives, yet a little patience and completing school would give them a foundation on which to enjoy the rest of their lives with their spouses.”
Abenakyo told Mr. Museveni that she is an advocate of responsible living among young people and that she mainly focuses on helping young girls to live responsible and healthy lifestyles.
