Kigulu South MP, Andrew Kaluya was during Parliament plenary prompted to seek the telephone contact of reigning Miss Uganda, Quiin Abenakyo who has been making headlines ever since she was crowned Miss World Africa.
The 26-year-old beauty queen was in December crowned Miss World Africa after finishing among the Top 3 in the Miss World contest.
Her outstanding record performance placed her in the international spotlight, with many Ugandans praising her for putting Uganda at a global pedestal. She has since met with President Museveni twice who commended her for her works and pledged his support to her projects. Similar support was recently committed by Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga.
On Wednesday, Parliament took its turn to pay tribute to the beauty queen. During the debate, several legislators praised Abenakyo for her beauty and brilliance which helped market Uganda and Africa in general.
While plenary was ongoing, some male MPs sought for Abenakyo’s number in order “to get familiar with her projects”.
MP Kaluya requested that through the Speaker, Abenakyo avails her telephone number to the legislators interested.
“Abenakyo has made Uganda proud and Africa at large, these two have been know for negative side largely but now we have a reason to celebrate Uganda as the Pearl of Africa,” Kaluya said.
He added, “It is no doubt that this achievement has come from a very young Musoga girl beautiful as she looks and with the support of government, more of such talents will show up.”
The Kigulu county legislator described Abenakyo as not only being beautiful but also brilliant with very strong values especially when it comes to the girl child.
“On behalf of most of the male MPs in this house, who are very underprivileged have suggested that they get a little bit familiar with her projects so that they can help the girl child in their constituencies,” Kaluya said.
“They have requested me that through you, Quiin Abenakyo gives us her number so that we can help the girl child.”
The motion to support Abenakyo’s girl-child projects, particularly the fight against teenage pregnancy was moved by Ngora Woman Member of Parliament (MP), Jacquiline Amongin seconded by Hanifa Kayowa and Pamela Nasiyo.
