Move aside Bobi Wine, the floor now belongs to Barbie Kyagulanyi as she is at war with one of Uganda’s prominent fashion icons.
The fresh war is between Bobi Wine’s wife Barbie Itungo Kyagulanyi and fashion designer Sylvia Owori who posted a nasty comment undermining Barbie thinking she is just overrated and this was after she appeared as one of the panelists at the Geopolitics conference at Makerere University last Monday alongside the American Ambassador Malac Deborah, D.r Maggie Kigozi, Woman MP Winnie Kiiza and French Ambassador Stephanie Rivoal among others.
With this panel, Sylvia Owori thinks Barbie was the old woman out and thus didn’t deserve the spot because she is not ‘inspiring enough’.
“Kyagulanyi Barbie Itungo I am a little confused here. Are you one of the most powerful inspirational women in Uganda??? There are over 1000 women who should have rightfully been on that panel discussing Women issues. Let us not mix politics with meritocracy.” She posted on twitter
But it was Barbies’ response that got people talking as she calmly watered down Sylvia’s comment by responding positively instead when most people expected her to rutrn fire with fire. This seems to have won Barbie even more admirers as they concluded Sylvia was put in her right place. Here is her response;
“Sylvia Owori, am I one of the most powerful inspirational women in Uganda? OH YES I AM ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN UGANDA HAS EVER HAD and you are an inspiration too Mama. I hope they invite you next time because I know you would fit on this panel just like a Million other Inspirational women out here.”
This is the first time the two inspirational women are clashing but by the look of things, it has become a trending topic on social media as comments and reactions have been pouring since then. We are going to bring them to you shortly.
