Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni criticized the new Miss Africa, Quinn Abenakyo, for “wearing Indian hair”. But some twitter users failed not to ignore his advice but mocked him while some praised his observation.
The Ugandan national was sensitized by her president to “keep her hair natural, African”.
“Abenakyo is indeed a great and beautiful daughter of Musoga. My only concern is that she was wearing Indian hair. I encouraged her to keep her hair natural and African. We must show African beauty in its natural form,” president Museveni tweeted.
His remarks divided opinion on Twitter. Some supported the president while others drew attention to his own capillary potential.
“Too much has been said by a man without hair ………kitalo” launches a Twitter user.
“But why don’t you keep your natural hair, Mr. President, so that you can promote African natural hair as well and be exemplary. This is the time when you kept the “Afro” that I miss, Mr. President” mocked a netizen.
“I agree with you Mr. President on this point, she must keep her hair natural to represent true African beauty. After all, she’s already a winner.”
