At last Uganda’s national flag is flying so high after the conclusion of Miss World competitions which were concluded yesterday in Sanya city, China where Uganda’s Quinn Abenakyo was awarded Miss World Africa and among the top five candidates out of the 118 contestants which were involved in the competition.
Abenakyo was crowned miss world Africa after she made it to the top 5 at the world’s running international beauty pageant and this achievement is attributed to unity that was put forward by Ugandans who voted Quinn Abenakyo through the competition.
