The announcement was made during a media launch of Miss International Uganda 2019/20 held on September 18 at The Athena hotel in Bugolobi, a city suburb.

“Uganda will be participating for the first time, this year, at the Miss International beauty pageant. And, Namatovu will be representing us,” said Monica Akech, the national coordinator at Miss International Uganda at the launch.

Namatovu, who dubs as Miss International Uganda 2019/20 was selected as Uganda’s representative after a vigorous online casting (interviewing) process held in August.

“Among all the girls we interviewed, the way Namatovu responded to the questions was very impressive. And, it was for this reason we chose her,” Akech says.

The other qualifications the organisers considered included height measurements where 5”5 is the minimum height requirement for contestants. Also, they are expected to between 18 and 27 years.
