The fifth edition of Miss Uganda UK is on and one lucky lady out of eleven will be crowned. This will be at the Boleyn Banqueting Suite in East Ham, London, on November 7.
The crowned beauty queen will become the face and voice of the campaign that is also lobbying for the president and speaker of the parliament of Uganda to introduce laws that can protect children from the Child sacrifice crime.
Child sacrifice is a practice driven by superstition, exploitation, witchcraft and extreme poverty.
“Children and parents live in fear of kidnap and murder. Innocent children’s body parts are cut off and used in ritual ceremonies in the belief that they will be consumed by spirits in exchange for good health, riches, success or solve other problems,” read a statement from Jubilee Campaign who were delighted to have the additional voice of Miss Uganda UK to their campaign.
The winner will be selected in a glamorous event, managed by JF Solutions, by a panel of judges. These include designer Jose Hendo, Ugandan community leader Samuel Olara, photographer Helena G Anderson and fashion and beauty entrepreneur Sheila Gatonye.
The event will be hosted by Nancy Kitaka Mugga and will also feature a line-up of UKJ-based artists including the cultural music and dance outfit Acd Arts, VJ OJ, Lea Habz, Skata, Wool Betah Soldja, Bella Mubiru and Illimadi. Miss Uganda UK is sponsored by Moneyswift, Jose Jobs Link and Mama Jumbe’s.
