Dethroned Miss Popularity rewarded with a paid internship

Following an error in the tabulation of the results for the Miss Popularity-Miss Uganda category, Santina Anshemeza who was initially announced the winner was later dethroned.

The dethroned Anshemeza, who ended up finishing overall fourth, has been rewarded with a paid internship at Project Africa in a bid to avoid embarrassment after tasting victory for such a short stint.

This comes after the Miss Uganda team released an official statement revealing how Bronnie Divine Kusiima had emerged the winner of the category on Monday.

The coronation of Bronnie Divine subsequently meant that Shs2m worth of prize money, a trip to the 2019 UNAA Convention and other fancy gifts had to be recollected from Anshemeza.
