Farmer crowned Miss Uganda 2014





A former mushroom and poultry farmer has been crowned Miss Uganda following a major rebranding of the annual beauty pageant, now designed to promote agriculture in the country. 

Leah Kalanguka, 23, beat off 19 other finalists after a competition that saw the glamour of the catwalk ditched for an army-sponsored boot camp on a farm, where contestants had to milk cows and work with goats and sheep.

"The youth will love agriculture because it goes hand in hand with beauty. Right now, farming is mostly done by elderly women," Kalanguka, wearing a gold dress, tiara and a sash, told AFP during the awarding ceremony.

Kalangkula, said "It would be a great direction because the agriculture sector has great opportunity for jobs, so I'm simply grateful that it took that direction and I would really love to see it promoted in our country because it is the backbone." 

Twenty two year old Brenda Iriama from Nakapiripirit and Taban Yasmin(Koboko) were the first  and second runners up respectively for the month long  beauty pageant  organised under the theme ‘Promoting agricultural entrepreneurship among the youth’.

Kalangkula will represent in London for Miss World pageant sometimes in December.
