President Museveni on Saturday praised Miss Uganda also recently-crowned Miss World Africa, Quiin Abenakyo for heeding to his advice of having natural hair.
Museveni hosted Abenakyo and her family for a dinner at his country home in Rwakitura on Saturday. Museveni earlier this month criticised Abenakyo for wearing ‘fake’ Indian 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 on December 19th after meeting her at State House, Entebbe.
However, on Saturday, Abenakyo turned up for the dinner with natural hair.
“Now, you have become African,” Museveni said.
“She has re-asserted her African identity in the form of keeping her hair natural because there is nothing to add on or subtract from the African beauty. God beautifully created Africas, there is no need to add or subtract anything. he added.
Once again, I congratulate Muzukulu Quiin Abenakyo for winning the Miss World Africa crown and pledge government support to the Miss Uganda Foundation.

“Like I indicated earlier, the government will support the Miss Uganda Foundation and also support Abenakyo in her activities. I wish her success in her reign as Miss Uganda and Miss World Africa,” he said.
