Kabira Country Club was the place to be as six female students battled for the crown of Miss Victoria University. This is the second time that the Ruparelia Group owned University is organizing the pageant.
Guests started arriving at early as 7pm setting the moment right for the day’s activities to kick off. By 8pm, the girls made their way onto the stage showcasing casual attires. Most of the girls wore ‘damaged’ jeans in a chicky way.
The MC of the night introduced the girls by their names, courses and nationality. Of the six girls, there was one from South Sudan and DR Congo. They would later in the night showcase cultural wear and explain their cultures.
In the first question and answer session, the girls were asked question to determine how well they knew their University. And they indeed know their school in and out, including its history. They never disappointed.
At the end of the day, Namuli Precious Priscilla, a foundation course student, emerged the overall winner. She was also voted Miss Popularity by fellow students. She won a cash prize of Shs500, 000 and gift hampers from the University and the event’s sponsor.
The first runner up was Akuol Zakaria Deng, a foundation course student ahead of Napeyok Joan, studying Bachelors of Tourism and Hotel Management, who came third. Akuol went home Shs300, 000 richer while Napeyok bagged Shs200, 000.
The two also got gift hamper from the University and Radiant. Kansiime Merriele emerged as Miss Congeniality; Bingi Elsie Nina was named Miss Culture while Meima James Alexander was Miss Photogenic.
Miss Uganda 2014- Leah Kalanguka, Miss Uganda 2008 – 1st runner up Miss Diana Kahunde, Professor Lawoko, Dean of health sciences Victoria University were the judges of the day.
