MEMBER of Parliament Hon. Betty Nambooze has taken to social media to accuse former Miss Uganda Quin Abenakyo of continuing to steal currently beauty queen Olivia Nakakande’s deserved shine.
The legislator was reacting to the launch of Quin’s charity organizatin where President Yoweri Museveni donated up to Shs120 million.
The Foundation launch was also attended by Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.
Taking to Facebook, unimpressed Nambooze wrote:
“Former Miss Uganda Quiin Abenakyo might have handed over the crown to her successor Olivia Nakakande but she has refused to leave the stage for her.
Facilitated by Speaker Alitwala Kadaga and Mr.Museveni, Abenakyo continues to be the Government’s prefered beauty queen!
Today Mr.Museveni has given her UGX120,000,000= to fight teenage pregnancies….Kati ggwe Nakakande ey’eddira engeye weyiiye..And come up with a project worth the crown OR else youwill leave in Quin Abenakyo’s shadow for the entire period of your reign.”
President Museveni injected Shs 120m into Miss World-Africa Quiin Abenakyo’s foundation that strives to promote the wellbeing of girls through addressing issues on child marriage and teenage pregnancy.
Speaking at the launch of Quiin Abenakyo Foundation in Kampala on Monday evening, Mr Museveni blamed Parents Teachers Associations (PTAs) for introducing charges in Universal Primary Education (UPE) schools, which are supposed to offer free education services.
He said this has discouraged parents from keeping girl children in school leading to high cases of early pregnancies and child marriages.
While Quin’s move was seen by many as a great initiative, Nambooze thought otherwise.
And people are now accusing her of tribal insinuations considering the fact that Quin is from Busoga while Nakakande is a muganda.
