Winning Miss Uganda blew me away – Karema

Hannah Karema Tumukunde has been trending on social media, mostly because she was crowned Miss Uganda 2023/24. In her Senior Six vacation, the new beauty queen says she hopes to use her time at the helm to advocate against forced early marriages. Patrick Ssentongo had a chat with her.

Hannah Karema Tumukunde took home the Miss Uganda 2023/24 crown two weekends ago, replacing Elizabeth Bagaya.

After waiting in the queue of other journalists who were taking turns to interview her at Sheraton Kampala Hotel following her victory, I finally had a one-on-one with her.

Dressed in a gold dress with her sash running across from her shoulder to the waist, Karema looked everything queenly. Confident, simple and articulate, with a touch of humour, is how I would describe the 20-year-old who kept smiling as she started to reveal details of her journey to the highly-coveted crown.

“The announcement that I was Miss Uganda blew me away,” she says, adding that for a minute she could not believe it until she was hugged and congratulated by her runners-up.
