Elegance, Class and Glamour As Miss Uganda Visits Former School UMCAT

Oliver Nakakande, Miss Uganda 2019/20 on Monday 19TH August paid a courtesy visit to the home of Uganda’s leading Journalism and Multimedia Institution in Bukesa-Nakulabye.

Accompanied by a delegation of four, Nakakande who doubles as a former Miss UMCAT 2014/15 was welcomed by the current Miss UMCAT Barbra Elly together with Mr UMCAT John Atuhairwe, who enjoyed a session of glamour on the red carpet.

Miss Uganda is among the over 400 students set to graduate on 30th August in different disciplines of diploma, Certificate and Short courses.

Speaking to the continuing students in the school main hall, Nakakande implored the girls to remain focused and not to backtrack on their passion and dreams because it takes an extra effort to make it to the top.

“I personally never had this dream at first, but after winning Miss UMCAT Contest in 2014, I realized I can make it. My zeal, commitment and desire to become a go-getter got amplified! That’s how I joined the Miss Uganda beauty Pageant and I want to assure you, this is not the end of the game, I’m still pushing on so hard, I want to bring the Miss World Crown home!” Nakakande said.   

This is the maiden visit to UMCAT ever since she was crowned Miss Uganda at the prestigious event that went down at the Kampala Sheraton Hotel in July.

The Miss Uganda home coming event was graced by UMCAT Director Mr. Charles Ogwel, Principal Watendwa Godfery, Academic Registrar Mr. Okiria Richard and a number of Alumni who congratulated the beauty queen upon the milestone achieved, and Making UMCAT Proud.
