Kampala: After grueling months of traversing 12 clusters of Uganda searching for Uganda’s next tourism ambassador, the night belonged to Miss Phionah Kyeru who claimed the coveted Miss Tourism 2019 crown.
Phiona Kyeru beat 25 other juicy models from Ankole, Buganda, Bunyoro, Kigezi, West Nile, Eastern, Busoga and Northern Uganda in the finale held at the Kampala Serena Hotel.
She also won a land title courtesy of Sema Properties and a brand new vehicle courtesy of Jack Pemba and will represent Uganda at the Miss Tourism World competitions.
Ms. Agwang Prossy from Teso emerged as the first runner up and Ms. Jean Corprise Akullo from Karamoja was the second runner up in a colorful ceremony.
Among others who were crowned at different categories include Esther Biira who came as miss sports, Ovoyo Esther miss popularity and Jane Akuro miss congeniality and many more were also crowned for their capacitated categories.
By 12:00am, the crowd had started showing their grievances on the organizers saying that they were delaying to announce miss tourism.
“Instead of announcing the winner, they are just bringing upcoming artists to waste our time” crowd complained.
The night also saw several performances from different artists that kept revelers entertained throughout the night.
By the way, all these lovely models are styled by Breeze Serenity Spa & Salon in Kampala, so if you want to look as lovely as they do, then better visit them just next to Kampala Casino.
Congratulations to the winners upon joining the family of Miss Tourism Uganda.
