Kenyans Voted Ugliest in Africa
Kenyans were last weekend voted the funniest looking people in Africa. With 48 participating nations in the Annual Most Beautiful People of Africa Awards, held at the Gregor Theater in Bloemfontein SA, Kenya took the last position, dislodging Zambia and reclaiming the title it held in 2000.
It posted 7 points out of a possible 540 points. The top position was taken by Rwanda, followed by Cameroon and then Ethiopia as second runner up. The last three positions were Kenya at 48, Zambia at 47, then Gabon, at 46. The judges said they gave their points based on presentation, physical appearance, grooming, communication and other areas.
Coincidentally this came just a week after an article on Kenyans appeared in the Pretorian Bird. The article, in the entertainment section, claims Kenya has the funniest looking president on earth, and a VP with a strange looking head. It goes on to say that Kikuyu women and Luo men pose the most weird features.
"Women from the Kikuyu community have small legs, totally no figures, and a little exeggerated heads. They lack good behinds and those who have them look like inflated baloons.They are shaped like pyramids turned upside down.A big upper frame and an almost inviscible lower bit.
Luo men on the other side have distorted facial features..say big lips and huge noses or should we call them knobs. Kikuyu men are also unproportional, and most of them are stunted. They walk leaning foward. Plus they have long rusty teeth."
"Those from Kisii Districts are small people, the average Kenyan man will stop growing at 5'2"...5'4" tops. Kisii men have mango shaped heads, and bowed legs, a feature also common in in their Luhya counterparts."
He goes on to describe Kaleos as "Funny little pitch black emaciated fellows, raking in millions from the track. However long they'll remain in Europe, their features never improve". "Nandis will have rounded foreheads, and thin, long arms". While occupants at the coast province are said to have "Wide faces, almost like a widescreen telly, especially taitas,and durumas"
"Kenyans do not know the meaning of good grooming" The writer says. "The women hate their dark skins and opt for mercury bleachs which mess them up. The result: A scary (unpigmented)light face, black legs, and a black back". As much as the Kenyan accent, of standard english is admired, "there's too much mothertounge interference, common in Merus, Kisiis, and Kikuyus".
While Luos were pointed out as to be suffering from chronic 'braggitis'. The research funded by the institute of Primate Research at the University of St. Kenkley, also noted that Kenyan men are very marketable in the Kimberely area of SA and parts of the Guateng region. Reason, they are big, hopeless spenders.
Moral lesson, "Be careful dating a Kenyan online." Accepting the Award Ambassador Kinyesi, complained of biased judging. Also present were dignitaries from all around Africa.
How damn have we become? Ugliest looking??? where does this kind of thinking come from except our colonial hangover.
Been watching too much from Hollywood and use the lens to decide who is beautiful or ugly. Sooo disappointed at the low self esteem of our people. Why not just present talent. Rememeber the beautiful ones are not yet born.
Guide2Uganda, go chat shit else where, I don't know what Kenyan people or places you've visited to witness all this bullshit! Clearly you lack anything important in your life that's why you have all the time in the world to create these silly theories.....
I disagree with that judgement.
as far as i believe this is crap from river rd, i haven't heard the mention of e.g.Guinea which has the most ugliest players which scared the Ghanian players during African games.
There are 42 tribes in kenya y take 10 only? You shuold have taken all tribes into cosinderation before making your jugdement.
This study is not scientific. I think the writter for personal reasons wanted the reaction he is getting. Does it matter whether he used 10 tribes or 2?
Why u guys mad tho?? LMAO
I am Kenyan and i do agree with the results of the research especially about Kikuyu women, yes they have ugly shapes.
With their ugly shapes tell me why are they the most marketable women in Kenya. Most tribes want to get married to a kyuk.
I don't agree with the poster about Kenyans being ugly, neither do I agree with the fellows saying that Kikuyu women are ugly because they are not. They may have queer shapes but they're not ugly.
However, please don't insult Kenyans by saying that Kikuyus are the most marketable women. You're living in total denial. Kikuyu women rank lowest among women to marry in this country. It's only your men who prefer you to others and that's because other woman would never touch them with a 10-foot pole. They also rank lowest among the marketable men.
kikuyu women r very ugly
Lillian r u that bitch that used 2 wrk nght shift at Koinange with cracked lip n ironed asshole? Thats Wat I thought.
So funny article. I laughed for hours when reading this..anyway, I thought Kenyans were most beautiful in the world. Funny how "beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder". I think the beholder in this article was blind..Nigerians,Ghanians, infact all Western Africa has very ugly people, you can confuse them with monkeys
You can confuse West Africans for monkeys? Really Ladybird? Then why was the first African to win the coveted Miss World title from Nigeria? And have you ever seen the beauties from Senegal, Gambia, Ivory Coast and Guinea? Don't talk what you don't know. West Africans have their fair share of beauties. The Igbos of Nigeria for instance are among the most beautiful women this continent has produced. Tembea uone.
While I believe this article if is useless and we are beautiful, I can tell you for sure, Nigerians are among the most beautiful people I've seen, especially the girls in my school and I live in Virginia. West Africans are beautiful I have some of them as friends. It is more shameful that they do not even care to compare themselves to us, while we go on ranting about them. they seem more confident and confidence is attractive
CLEARLY WE AS AFRICANS HAVE A LOT OF TIME ON OUR HANDS CONCENTRATING IN STUFF THAT REALLY DOES NOT HELP US AS A CONTINENT. WTF IS THIS SHIT ANYWAY?? SHOULDN'T WE BE WORKING ON WAYS OF HELPING US FORGE TOGETHER AS A PEOPLE , INSTEAD OF WORKING ON WAYS TO CREATE RIFTS BETWEEN US? I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS CRAP WAS ACTUALLY UNDERTAKEN BY GROWN UP INTELLIGENT PEOPLE WHO HAVE PRIDE IN THEMSELVES FOR BEING AFRICANS. WHAT DO THINK PEOPLE FROM OTHER CONTINENTS THINK WHEN THEY SEE THIS?
you are absolutely right. this university doesnt exist. this proves that this article and the whole thing is fake..
Lets be real..... Kenyans aren't the most attractive people.
You are a FOOL! You think west Africans are ugly? no, you are just jealous. Where was your east African beauty when a west African (Nigerian) won the first African miss world? Kenyans are the most jealous and insecure people I've come across. Can't you oppose the post without calling others ugly. You people are definitely ugly, that's why you came last, all the judges were not blind. . . Jealousy!
hahaha..this is so funny....y'all Kenyans just chill out...ignore crap. There's so much we have that other guys are trying to take our attention from.....
This is understandable coming from SA. Its retaliatory remarks. Their men have tried to date Kenyan women to no avail n Kenyan men r taking their girlfriends. Anyway an idle mind is a devil's workshop.
Are you talking aboutObama Senior? If you are calling Obama, the president of USA, a Luo, then you are lending credence to the birthers claim...
I dont think the contest was testing inteligence. You seem to be pretty pissed off by this nonsense. Just laugh it off. Each human being is unique...
Check out the Habesha women (google if you have to) and see who your competitors are... it is also not right to disagree with such an article by insulting others. you are no different from the people who wrote such. as for kyuk women being most sort after... i needed the laugh. thanx. we have so many tribes and races here... it is sad how we are always reduced to ten tribes.... makes no sense.
As for the article...look around more and judge your environment as a foreigner... i believe people are different and should be respected as such. we have had problems in this country because some believe themselves to be superior to others just because they have had an advantage over others since independence. guys...there are more important things to concentrate on...
Why should we check out the Habesha women to see what you perceive are our "competitors"? Is this a topic about Kenyan women? No! It says "Kenyans voted ugliest", not "Kenyan women voted ugliset". It includes the men too. But if you prefer to go that "Kenyan women vs. Ethiopian women" route, I'd also suggest to you to check out Ivorian men and see who your "competitors" are.
kenyans are beautiful except kikuyu women.
Sally, whatever personal issues you have with Kikuyu women should not cloud your judgement. Kikuyu women do have their fair share of pretty faces. They do not have sexy bodies, but they are pretty. They don't have personalities to die for either, but they have nice passport pictures. They cannot wear swim suits without prompting outbursts from by-standers, but they make up for that by having nice faces (am talking about the ones who are lucky enough to escape the Brown-Stained-Teeth-Syndrome).
Sally i think u r either jealous coz u r man chose a kyuk over you or u r just an arrogant fool who have nothing to say.
Leave Sally alone, she has a right to her opinion. Just because she doesn't find Kyuks beautiful doesn't mean she's jealous and that a man left her for one. Though I think Kyuk girls are pretty, I know several people who actually don't find Kikuyus to be beautiful in any way. Are they jealous as well?
Please, let's learn to accommodate other people's opinions however much you may disagree with them.
This is the best description of PRIMITIVE ENERGY!!WHAT YOU SEE IN OTHERS IS A MIRROR OF YOURSELF, nyani haioni kundule!
CRAP!!!! I'm a beautiful Kenyan woman........
The author Mwakilishi, is not a South African, so get your facts straight. Might be a Kenya, who knows. I just don't think it's fair to say any country is the ugliest as they are generally mixed types of people.
Freedom of speech is very much promoted and cherished in a democratic world. However to make such ludicrous arguments about the beautiful Kenyan people is wrong to say the least and an abuse of this basic freedom. The so called research is heavily subjective and biased, a complete distortion of the facts. The different people of Kenya have their unique features and that what makes them beautiful and highly admirable to the rest of the world ( You dont need to go far- Just look at Barack Obama:POTUS). The views held above are simply cheap and have no place in modern society. All a reader can do is JUST IGNORE THEM. The Kikuyu women and Luo men, the Kisii and Meru people and all the rest of Kenya; you are all good in your own special ways
This is crap. My Dad is 6.4 and I have light skin and everyone says I'm beautiful. Stereotypical and biased judging, Ethiopians have to much everything they are so hairy.
Sad enough, 6.4 and "light skin" doesn't make one beautiful. I prefer dark skin over light personally.
Can you please leave the "dark skin vs light skin" crap back in your homeland. Don't drag it here. Leave it for Nairaland. That's the forum where skin colour topics reign. Trust me, in Kenya, no one wants to know what skin tone you prefer.
I am kenyan living among the kikuyu people..kenyan women are beutiful but to be sincere enough, kikuyu women are not.
