Fashion designer and entrepreneur Slyvia Owori has opened war on singer Bobi Wine’s wife Barbie Itungo Kyagulanyi saying she is uninfluential after she was named among the panelists of the recently concluded first Kampala Geopolitics Conference organized by the French Embassy at Makerere University.
The conference saw women like H.E Malac Deborah, the American ambassador to Uganda, Dr. Maggie Kigozi, H.E Stephanie Rivoal the French Ambassador to Uganda, Hon. Winnie Kiiza and Sarah Sali, the Dean, School of Women and Gender Studies MUK discuss roles of powerful women in society.
According to the veteran fashionista, Barbie is over rated and nowhere close to the most powerful women in country.
“I am a little confused here. Are you one of the most powerful inspirational women in Uganda??? There are over 1000 women who should have rightfully been on that panel discussing Women issues. Let us not mix politics with meritocracy,” Sylvia Owori commented on Barbie’s social media post.
Her comments didn’t land on a deaf ear as the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament’s wife dared Owori to take part in the next edition before declaring self the ‘THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL WOMAN UGANDA HAS EVER HAD.’
“Am I one of the most powerful inspirational women in Uganda? OH YES I AM ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN UGANDA HAS EVER HAD,” and you are an inspiration too Mama. I hope they invite you next time because I know you would fit on this panel just like a Million other Inspirational women out here,” Barbie sarcastically replied.
This is the first time that the two women have had a social media disagreement.
