Bobi Wine’s wife managed to put Uganda fashion entrepreneur, Sylvia Owori to her rightful level during a social media exchange that the designer had declared.
Barbie Kyagulanyi’s presence at the Kampala Geopolitics Conference at Makerere University on Monday could have left the fashion designer some what disappointed.
In Owori’s opinion, Barbie was not a suitable to sit among influential figures like the American Ambassador, Malac Deborah, Dr. Maggie Kigozi, French Ambassador, Stephanie Rivoal, Kasese Woman MP, Winnie Kiiza and Sarah Sali, the Dean school of women and gender studies Makerere University.
She believed, Mrs. Kyagulanyi was some what hyped to a level that less befits a person of her caliber. The fashion icon took to her Facebook to give ‘a piece of advice’ to future organisers on how best to choose guest speakers.
“Kyagulanyi Barbie Itungo I am a little confused here. Are you one of the most powerful inspirational women in Uganda??? There are over 1000 women who should have rightfully been on that panel discussing Women issues. Let us not mix politics with meritocracy.”
See what Barbie replied
“Sylvia Owori, am I one of the most powerful inspirational women in Uganda? OH YES I AM ONE OF THE MOST INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN UGANDA HAS EVER HAD and you are an inspiration too Mama. I hope they invite you next time because I know you would fit on this panel just like a Million other Inspirational women out here,” Barbie sarcastically replied.
Many of Barbie Kyagulanyi’s fans slammed Owori for meddling in businesses that does not concern her and also seeking media attention.
“Jealous Has Always Been The Mother Of Envy…People Like Sylvia Owori Are Always Envious Of What They Cannot Do!”Mark Mukiibi Farouk said
Patricia Ssewungu said “Questioning Barbie’s presence on the panel is like telling the organisers that they didn’t know who they needed. That is both rude & ignorant of you Miss Owori. A host has a right to choose his or her guest- basic etiquette. Don’t mix politics as well as meritocracy with the study of the effects of geography on politics and international relations (Geopolitics). Presently, she has the “global” following to have an effect on women’s lives.
If Mrs Barbara Itungo was invited by the French embassy, then they saw her befitting to be part of the panel.”
