Chaos rocks Miss Tourism 10th edition

All is not well in the Miss Tourism 2023/2024 contest.

As we report the project has been captured by impersonators.

According to the beauty pageant management, “it has come to their knowledge that some impersonators have infiltrated to set-up an online voting that didn’t belong to the project.”

They however, clarified that the only online voting attached to them was ‘Africavotes’ portal.

Our publication has been reliably informed that there is no smoke without fire. Here’s so far what our moles have gathered.

According to insiders in the project, it’s alleged that the project lost meaning after the death of its vision bearer and founder Maria Mutagamba, then former Minister of Tourism Wildlife and Antiquities.

When she died, the Mutagamba family reportedly hijacked it as a family project. This prompted the Tourism Ministry to close cash taps, hence becoming a private project in the tourism industry.

Sources also add that following the pullout of the Tourism Ministry, even other potential funders ended up running away because there was no clear value for money at the end of the day.

“It lost the Tourism marketing touch and many started seeing it as an outing event hence pulling out of it. The founder –Mutagamba wanted to promote Uganda, but this not the case,” a source reveals.

It is also reported that it is Mutagamba’s daughter who calls shots there nowadays.

Concerning voting and choosing the winner/ miss popularity, we are told the online voting has been generating some funds to which 30% would go to owners of the voting Portal and 70% to the organizers.

And the 70% is always reportedly chewed by the organisers than re-injecting in the project. This has since resulted in another exodus of many stakeholders who felt disappointed and betrayed.

It is also reported that the project has even lost some of its franchise as some cluster heads registered them as their personal limited companies.

We are told the likes of  Miss Tourism Kigezi,  Miss Tourism Rwenzori,  Miss Tourism  Buganda and  Miss Tourism Northern Uganda are no longer under the grip of the Mutagamba daughter and have even gone ahead to form an Association of Cluster Heads.
However, on the side of Buganda, it was later returned as Miss Tourism Buganda Kingdom after the intervention of Buganda Kingdom.

“The pageant is losing direction. Apart from the one of 2019 where the winner went away with a car given to her by faded socialite Pemba, others are now meaningless. Contestants have been failing to maintain their status and others use the platform to get men. Some participants do not return back to the market and promote the Tourism industry. There is even low turn up of registration for new participants,” adds an insider.

Our snoopers will keep you up to speed with behind the scenes during the contestants’ regeneration, boot camp and training. Watch the space!

Under the theme “Greening Tourism”, the show will be touring 12 regions across the country in search of the next queen starting in May.

The grand finale will be held on September 9 at Kampala Serena hotel.
