Dazzling Ugandan model Vanessa Tendo Naddamba is the new Miss Uganda UK after she was crowned at a colourful ceremony that was held at the Dominion Centre, 9 Broadway in London, on Saturday November 5th, 2022.
Thanks to her beauty and brains, Naddamba managed to beat all other contesters to scoop the crown during a ceremony that was attended by a huge audience.
Besides Naddamba however, the night also saw Isabella Mukasa emerge as 1st Princess and the 2nd Princess was Vanessa Nakitende.
Sponsored by among others Tap Tap Send, a renowned international money transfer company, this year’s Miss Uganda UK lived up to the hype and pomp that usually characterizes the pageant.
The Miss Uganda UK returned this year following a two-year break that was announced in 2019 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Naddamba now takes over the crown from Caitlin Ochana, whose reign had been extended as organisers waited for the authorities to lift the ban on public gatherings in a bid to prevent the spread off COVID-19.
