Kadaga asks MPs to vote for Abenakyo to win Miss World

Miss Uganda Quinn Abenakyo


The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga has rallied the public including members of parliament to vote for Uganda’s beauty champion Quiin Abenakyo for Miss World.

Kadaga was presiding over the House sitting on Wednesday afternoon when she made the call.

The call also comes amidst an aggressive campaign in which Ugandans are supporting their own 22-year-old Aabenakyo who made it to the Top 30 Finalists in the Miss World Competition.

Ms Abenakyo, who is the current Miss Uganda, performed well in the competition becoming the first Ugandan to ever make it to the top 30 finalists in the Miss World competition.

Miss World, in a bid to differentiate themselves from other pageants, rate its contestants based on a game-changing cause, which is why it has dubbed the competition Beauty With a Purpose.

Ms Julia Morley, the chairperson of Miss World Organisation, said the 1972 shift requires each representative of a country in the competition to choose a project close to her home, present and defend its viability.

During the Head-to-Head challenge that had contestants paired up, Ms Abenakyo was up against Argentina’s Victoria Soto. The 22-year-old Ugandan spoke passionately about her Beauty with a Purpose project conceived to fight teenage pregnancies.

The global competition is underway in Sanya, China and is expected to climax this Friday.

Vote for Abenakyo here.
