Museveni: Why I prefer dark-skinned women

President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has revealed his preferred complexion for a woman and there are no prizes for guessing. While terming resentment of the dark skin coluor as psychological sickness, President Museveni also blasted African women who denature their dark skinned bodies and hair.

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.

“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.

The president said that from time immemorial dark-skinned women were viewed as being more beautiful that light-skinned women.

He went on to state that the purpose of the dark skin on account of melanin is scientific and medical, to filter out the harmful ultra-violet rays of the sun.

“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,’” the head of state said.

The president also defended 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, dealings 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.”
