There is more to Uganda than it’s women
Seven Billion Today
As the title says, there is more to Uganda than it’s women. Whilst Uganda’s women are sensual, strong and beautiful, the government should not use them as a selling point for tourism.
Tourism minister Godfrey Kiwanda used women as an object in his new tourism campaign. “Curvy women” he says, to try and attract tourists.
1) Uganda is a wonderful country with a lot to offer. A vibrant country. I love to be from Uganda. We have more to offer here than just a sexual object to look at!
2) we have a pressing problem in Uganda of sexual violence against women. Our government should be finding a way to help and protect women. Instead, this just makes them look even more like a sexualised object which makes me feel uncomfortable.
I, ask the Tourism Minister directly to change this campaign and to appreciate the image of Ugandan women.
