Controversial Pastor Martin Ssempa says Zari Hassan’s appointment as Visit Uganda ambassador was a bad idea.
In a tweet, Pastor Ssempa said the socialite’s character does not represent what Uganda is as a country.
“Her behaviours don’t represent our ethics of a strong family and good manners. May be people were troubled by the good looks that hide the reality of the knowledge of who we know Zari to be,” he noted.
Additionally, a local website Kyakala.com quotes the cleric saying; “The only reason why a country seeking to market itself nationally and internationally would chose Zari as an ambassador is if we want to turn Uganda into a sex tourism industry.”
Zari was named Pearl of Africa and Visit Uganda ambassador last week, after several meetings with the Minister for Tourism Mr Godfrey Kiwanda.
