The winner of Miss Uganda goes ahead and contest for the world crown and this year’s miss world contest Miss Uganda Quiin Abenakyo made it to the top 30.
This is monumental moment for Uganda as they have secured a place in the top 30 for the first time in Miss World history. Miss Uganda had no words to express how she was feeling, in her own words she expressed: “I am very proud and humbled for having done this for my country.” Miss World 2018 will be the 68th edition of the Miss World pageant which will take place in Sanya, China on 8 December 2018.
