As the nation is still figuring out the rightful answers why the Ministry of Tourism dropped Miss Africa Quiin Abenakyo who was supposed to be their ‘Tulambule Uganda’ campaign headliner and replaced her with socialite Anita Fabiola, State Minister for Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda finally come out to shed some light on the matter.
In a media brief he held on Wednesday morning from Eastern Uganda, the minister explained why Miss Africa as well as miss Uganda was left out of the Tulambule Uganda Project. He defended the decision to pick on socialite and TV presenter Fabiola simply because she has a better following on social media than the Queen.
He furthermore reveals that socialites have always been neglected yet they have the numbers to sell Uganda before he cleared the air that the board had no visible agreement with the Queen as per the tour.
“The girls we move with, Anita Fabiola and Zari Hassan, are always on social media and they have a huge following. We are using their social media numbers to expose Uganda.” Kiwanda explained
Ministry of Tourism Had No Agreement With Miss Abenakyo
“As a ministry, we don’t have any formal agreement with Abenakyo to headline the Tulambule tour. The project is run on a goodwill basis, and we expect Quinn to be part of the tour on the next legs which will be heading to other regions of the country, particularly she might be part of the Northern region tour which will be the next leg after the eastern tour,” Kiwanda added.
On the other hand, Miss Abenakyo is currently in the same region with the Speaker of the parliament of Uganda Rebecca Kadaga for the ‘Keep A Girl Child In The School’ project.
