2019 runner up Bagaya new interim Miss Uganda 2020/21

The 2019/20 Miss Uganda beauty pageant first runner up Elizabeth Bagaya has been announced as the new interim Miss Uganda 2020/21.

According to the Chief Executive Director of the Miss Uganda pageant, Brenda Nanyonjo, Bagaya’s appointment takes effect immediately until a new Miss Uganda is crowned later this year.

“Kezzi Entertainment, the Miss World exclusive license holder, officially announces Miss. Bagaya Elizabeth, who was the first runner up as the interim Miss Uganda 2020/2021 to carry on with those duties of the Office of Miss Uganda effective immediately until when a new Miss Uganda is crowned later this year,” Nanyonjo said in a statement.

Last year, the Miss Uganda pageant was not held due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that induced restrictions on mass gatherings which prompted a postponement of the event to this year. consequently, Oliver Nakakande, who is 2019/2020 Miss Uganda had to further her reign for at least another year.

However, as per Nanyonjo, Nakakande did not perform her Miss Uganda duties as expected because she had to return to school and failed to strike a balance. This, according to Nanyonjo is why they had replaced her with Bagaya.

“Oliver Nakakande is away, continuing to pursue her studies consequently unable to execute the duties of the Office of Miss Uganda,” Nanyonjo said.

In the meantime, according to Nanyonjo, Mariam Nyamatte, who was the 2nd runner up now becomes the 1st runner up while Petronella Acen will now become the 2nd runner up. Acen is also the Miss Uganda North.

Kezzi Entertainment are the exclusive holders of the Miss World license in Uganda and together Miss Uganda Foundation and Talent Africa, organise the annual Miss Uganda pageant where the selected Miss Uganda, is mentored by the Academy of Queens, to represent the country at the global Miss World event.
