Curvy women are now part of tourism products to attract tourists in Uganda after Ministry of Tourism acknowledged them.
The initiative was launched on Tuesday 6th February on 2019 by the State minister for Tourism, Mr Godfrey Kiwanda, said a beauty pageant dubbed ‘Miss Curvy Uganda’ has been launched to select sexy curvaceous women and the finalists.
“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 wondered, pointing at “a sample” of beautiful women at the press conference on Tuesday.
In 2018, tourism in Uganda attracted revenue of $1.4b (Shs5 trillion).
The organizers of the event hope to increase event revenue production in Uganda with the new initiative.
“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 Ann Mungoma .
Only those aged 18 and below 35 are eligible to participate, organisers said.
