Persons with disabilities were put in the spotlight at Hot Pink Catwalk Charity Show that was held at Imperial Mall, Entebbe on Saturday.

The one of a kind fashion show saw models with disabilities and albinism take on the runway alongside the able-bodied persons. They showcased different collections by an inclusive cast of top designers who included Elijah Macquinn, Doris Sabiiti, Muyomba Julius, Mihunde and Kori House of Couture & Design among others.

Held under the theme, “breaking myths”, the fashion show which is now in its second edition aimed to debunk stereotypes and myths about the differently abled persons that perpetuate inequality by exposing the artistic and creative talents of persons with disabilities.

Addressing guests at the fashion show, Michelle Omamteker, the Executive Director Malengo Foundation emphasized the need for inclusive development so as to enable every individual in society realise their full potential.

“Inclusive development is who we are about!” She stated. “Development says lets move forward, but  inclusive development says lets move forward and ensure that no one is left behind.”

“When we focus on inclusive development we see how much society is losing out on. In order to leave no one behind especially regarding disability issues and disability rights, we must focus on eclipsing development at every discussion of the development agenda.” She added.

Malengo Foundation is a youth-led organization actively participating in creatively propagating all the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (The Global Goals) to youth across the African continent with specific reference to Goal 10 for Reduced Inequalities.

Here are some photos from the fashion show:

When musician Ykee Benda featured Jason Derulo on the World Cup song, “Colours”, word started going round that he would perform at the World Cup closing ceremony. However, as d-day drew closer, it certainly became apparent that he was not on the line up of performing artistes.

Although he watched the World Cup final live in Russia, he has not escaped criticism and mockery from a section of the public. He has now finally come out to clarify on what happened. “I did not perform at the World Cup closing ceremony because of contractual limitations. I was invited by Coca-Cola, but the World Cup is organised by FIFA who had their own plans.”

“But even when I did not perform at the finals, it was still a win for Uganda because I raised the Ugandan flag high. It was also a dream come true for me to watch the World Cup finals live because I am a big football fan.”

“I am excited to be unveiling my new video,” he said. “I wanted to give my fans something different. And because most of the beautiful locations around town have all been used before, I decided to shoot my new video in South Africa.”
