He is quoted as saying: “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?”

Lead organiser of the ‘Miss Curvy Uganda’, Ann Mungoma is also reported as saying the pageantry will be so unique and hypnotising that foreigners who will visit Uganda would wish to remain in the country forever.

“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,” Ann said.

She added that ‘Miss Curvy Uganda’ is meant to disabuse people’s perception that only slender, pretty ladies represent beauty.
