There is a huge war of words between Barbie Kyagulanyi, the wife to Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi and fashionista, Sylvia Owori
It all started when Barbie posted pictures while attending the first Geopolitics conference organised by the French embassy at Makerere University yesterday.
Barbie wrote, “My self,together with H.E Malac Deborah (American ambassador to uganda) DR. Maggie Kigozi, H.E Stephanie Rivoal (French Ambassador to Uganda) Hon. Winnie Kiiza and Sarah Sali (Dean school of women and gender studies MUK) sat on the same panel to discuss the meaning of the word POWERFUL WOMEN.. Our discussion was wide but I carried some questions along and I would like to pick your thoughts on these topics. Do you think men are intimidated by women in leadership positions? Where Do you think we stand today in the struggle for women empowerment and gender equality? Are women coming out to take on the platforms availed to them in the leadership arena? Who in your opinion represents a strong woman? I will be sharing a few videos of our discussion soon. Thank you French Embassy for inviting me. It was humbling.”
The comment touched one of Sylvia Owori’s red wires, she took to the comments section and blasted Barbie: “I am a little confused her. 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.”
This angered Barbie who, while trying to play it cool fired back in capital letters, to express her anger: “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 tou are an inspiration too Mama. I hope they invite you next because I know you would fit on this panel just like a million other inspirational women out there.”
We left the battle on Barbie’s page to do other things…
