Gulu impresses Miss Uganda scouts

The second leg of the Miss Uganda 2012 regional tours took place over the weekend at Diana gardens in Gulu, with Gulu University presenting the highest number of contestants.

The northern region search proved to be more successful than the more anticipated trip to Western Uganda the weekend before. Sixteen contestants turned up for the pageant, out of which seven were selected and finally the top three, with Serah Rachael, 21, a Public Administration student at Gulu University walking away with the regional crown.

Lilly Ajok, a senior six vacationer and Susan Namirimu, 21, a student in Gulu University were the first and second runner-up respectively.  According to the organisers, seven contestants from northern Uganda will take part in the top 20 selection, and that is more than the three girls that were found in Mbarara the previous weekend.

“The girls in Gulu fitted the physical profile of world-class models and had well-thought-out answers to the judges’ questions, making them very strong competitors on the whole,” said Brenda Nanyonjo, Miss Uganda chief.

Grace Nakimera and a host of local artistes from Gulu spiced up the event with performances. The third leg of the regional tours takes place this weekend in Jinja at Crested Crane hotel and it is expected to be highly competitive as far as quality of the contestants is concerned.
