One African Country Has Banned Beauty Pageants(See Why)

Guinea has placed a temporary ban on
beauty pageants in Guinea in response
to outrage over bikinis.

Mamady Youla, the country’s prime
minister, had attended a beauty pageant
during the weekend, where contestants
in swimsuits (bikinis) paraded in front
of him.

This elicited criticisms from Guineans
who accused the prime minister of
encouraging prostitution by being
present at the event.

Many nationals of the country had taken
to social media to slam their government
and express their distaste, BBC Afrique
reports.
Guinea is an extremely conservative
society with a majority Muslim
population.

The government has said the ban will
remain in place until a committee is set
up to establish a new code of ethics.
Siaka Barry, Guinea’s culture minister,
said the government had terminated its
contract with the organisers of the
pageant.
Barry was also present at the beauty
pageant that led to the government-
ordered ban.
