• Called on Africans to stand up for their beauty.
• He went on to state that the purpose of the dark skin on account of melanin is scientific and medical.
Uganda's president Yoweri Museveni is letting the world know that he has always and will forever be pro dark skinned women.
In his bid to highlight why he was pro dark skins, he went on to add that from time immemorial dark-skinned women were viewed as more beautiful that light-skinned women.
"To convey how beautiful and prosperous a woman is, they say she is so black that when she sits on the grass, it becomes black," Museveni said complimenting women of darker complexion.
He went on to add that being dark is not just a colour, the melanin that courses through African skin is scientific and medical.
The Ugandan president while terming resentment of the dark skin colour as psychological sickness, also took that opportunity to blast African women who go ahead to alter their dark skinned bodies and relax their kinky hair.
“The craze of African women wanting to denature their hair to look like Europeans or Asians, is pathetic. All our body parts are scientifically designed to suit our environment,” President Museveni said.
President Museveni went on to call on Africans to stand up for their beauty, saying African women of all shades with their short hair are the most beautiful beings to walk the universe.
He went ahead to defend short curled hair, clustered together on top of the head, saying that it could also be both scientific and medical.
It seems the scientific purposes are two, to act as a car radiator to cool the body by evaporating sweat which takes away the heat and, again, to protect the body against the ultra violet sun rays, harmful to the human body.
He also revealed his love for indigenous music, saying these songs have excellent content, from dealing with contemporary social or political issues, hence, the reason why he plays them every time in his car.
“It is the main music in my cars when I am driving, plus some religious tunes and NRM songs.”
