Babra Kemigisha from Uganda won the Miss Pride of Africa UK 2018 contests that took place over the weekend at East Ham Town Hall in London.
The UK based beauty queen and mother of one was contestant number 14 out of 15 ladies from other African countries; and was representing Uganda in the contest.
Kemigisha’s chore values were to promote Uganda in the UK and to help the needy children back in Uganda with scholastic materials.
It is a tough run as contestants are tested intellectually, how confident they are and ability to articulately answer societal questions.
Issues affecting Africa such as drug abuse, diseases, Child Abuse, genital mutilation and other social issues are some of the things asked to the contestants as part of the requirements for winning.
Miss Pride of Africa UK is a charitable beauty pageant that provides Africans in the UK with a platform to support fellow Africans at home.
It was initiated to integrate Africans in the United Kingdom, promote their diverse cultural heritage and also to project the positive image of African women and their culture to the world.
Indeed Uganda has been put further on the world map through this achievement due to the fact that this is the biggest and most admirable beauty pageant in the UK!
