Uganda’s minister proposes using ’curvy women’ to promote tourism

Uganda’s tourism minister Godfrey Kiwanda has suggested showcasing ’curvy women’ in order to attract more visitors. ’Why don’t we use these people as a strategy to promote our tourism industry?’, Kiwanda said in reference to the women. Kiwanda was speaking at the launch of a pageant dubbed ’Miss Curvy Uganda’. There was a swift backlash to the proposal online, with many calling it ’degrading’.

The one on the far right in the jeans is what I’d call “curvy”. The rest of the women are just fat.
