KAMPALA – Former Miss Uganda 2011 Sylvia Namutebi is set to represent Uganda in the forthcoming Mrs. World beauty pageant after she was nominated in the pageant that will take place in Sri Lanka in March 2021.
Namutebi has been one of the most active former beauty queens and has been working hand in hand with the Miss Uganda Foundation to groom and mentor girls that wish to become beauty queens.
Through her social media page, she shared the exciting news and requested her fans to go online and vote for her.
“Well I just won the title of Mrs. Uganda World, this is such an exciting moment for me. Please follow the Mrs. World page and show some support,” she shared on Saturday.
This will be Namutebi’s third time to represent Uganda at a global beauty pageant. In 2011, she competed in the 61st edition of Miss World, which was held at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London.
In 2013, she was crowned second Runner up at the Miss Global Beauty pageant, which was held at Sunset Beach Resort, Spa and Water Park in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Namutebi who is married to Talent Africa Group CEO Aly Allibhai was the driving force behind the revival of the Miss Uganda Pageant, and was very instrumental in the campaign that saw Quinn Abenakyo get crowned as Miss World Africa in 2018-2019.
She holds a degree in Human Resource Management, and is passionate about philanthropy which she does through the Talent Africa Foundation.
The Mrs. World pageant features directors from over 80 countries which has elevated the combined system to the largest and most successful of its genre in the world.
Currently, Sri Lanka’s Caroline Jurie holds the 2020 Mrs. World title and she won this after defeating 51 contestants in a beauty race which was held in Las Vegas, United States of America.
Founded in 1984, Mrs. World is the first beauty pageant for married women. It celebrates accomplished married women who are positively impacting their communities.
The pageant race was created in 1984 to celebrate married women, and this year’s event will be happening in March, 2021 in Sri Lanka where Namutebi will be battling with over 50 contestants.
