Miss Uganda, undoubtedly, is the country’s premiere beauty Pageant.
Several Queens have come and gone ever since inception of the project.
Some of their reigns, over the years, have been marred with stereotypes of all nature; ranging from “She’s not beautiful enough” to “She’s an empty-headed beautiful queen.”
Usually after their reign, they disappear in oblivion. Fans are always wondering where they are and what they’re up to.
