In a bid to boost its tourism offerings, Ugandan Ministry of Tourism has added curvy and sexy women to its list of tourism attractions.

The ministry yesterday unveiled a beauty pageant dubbed Miss Curvy Uganda which will forsee the selection of women to promote tourism in Uganda. The finalists will be selected inJune this year.

“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?” said Godfrey Kiwanda, Uganda Minister for Tourism.

Kiwanda’s comments immediately received backlash from the public with women terming the proposal as dehumanising and called for the minister resignation.
