Ugandan president criticises newly crowned Miss World Africa for preferring weaves to her African hair (photo)

Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni is one personality that does not believe in sugar-coating matters just to please his enemies or allies. He likes to say things as they are whatever the situation is.

He proved this on Wednesday, December 19, when he openly told recently crowned Miss World Africa, Quiin Abenakyo, that he did not like the foreign weave she was wearing.

Museveni categorically stated that he was displeased with Abenakyo’s hairstyle, (a designer Indian weave), urging her to drop it and maintain her natural hair.

The head of state claimed that though Abenakyo had amazing looks, her hairstyle probably suggested that she was not proud of her appearance.

“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,” Museveni wrote on social media.”
