It was joy and excitement as the 2019 Miss Uganda finalists were unveiled on Tuesday evening.
The 22 finalists who were selected from different regions across the country were revealed during the presentation night hosted in the Rwenzori ballroom at Sheraton Kampala Hotel.
Despite a delayed start, the jam-packed hall was filled with exuberance with several individuals in the audience armed with placards, pictures and some even donning t-shirts of their favorite contestants as they eagerly waited to cheer them on.
And when Cleopatra Koheirwe, the emcee of the evening, started calling out the contestants, the room was filled with deafening screams and cheers.
One by one, the Miss Uganda hopefuls cat-walked on the runway and were each followed by acclamations from the audience.
The contestants will now head to a boot camp where they will take part in a series of buildup activities to ready them to take on the mantle of Miss Uganda.
Organised by Kezzi Entertainment, who are the franchise holders of the Miss World Pageant for Uganda since 2011, in partnership with Talent Africa, the next Miss Uganda will be crowned on July 27th at Sheraton Kampala Hotel.
