Slyvia Namutebi Allibhai who is also former miss Uganda for the year 2011 has been crowned 3rd Mrs World replacing Crystal Newman who had a 10-year reign. Mrs Sylvia Namutebi Allibhai will be representing Uganda at Miss World Pageant happening this year in Sri Lanka.
Namutebi Allibhai expressed her joy through an announcement on her social media pages where she said,
“I enjoy working with children and the youth, helping them reach their full potential in various aspects of education, entrepreneurship or self-esteem and confidence building. I like to use my position in adding my voice to the under-represented to create real solutions to problems we face as a community.”
Namutebi Alibhai reigned as Miss Uganda in 2011 which led her to represent Uganda at the Mrs World Pageant in the same year.
She was instrumental in reviving the Mrs Uganda Pageant as the Miss Uganda Project coordinator for the years 2018 and 2019 during which she cemented her portfolio in the pageantry world.
Little more about her is that she is a marketing and business strategist by profession with a background in human resource management and international Business.
She has worked with children living with disabilities, families affected by the HIV pandemic and recently started the Smile With Sly; a project aimed at helping single mothers and young people affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The project also aims at raising awareness geared towards safe motherhood in marginalised communities of Uganda in partnership with the Talent Africa Foundation where she is a director.
Meanwhile, voting is ongoing on the contestant’s photo on Mrs World pageant’s official Facebook and Instagram pages; like and comment to push her further into the competition.
Difference Between Mrs & Miss World
Mrs. World is the first beauty pageant for married women creating that new genre in 1984. Mrs. World features directors in 80 countries which has elevated the combined systems to the largest and most successful of its genre in the world.
Miss World is the oldest running international beauty pageant. It was created in the United Kingdom by Eric Morley in 1951. Since his death in 2000, Morley’s widow, Julia Morley, has co-chaired the pageant.
