All 57 bevy of beauties paraded onstage wearing Swarovski jewelleries and national costumes from the sponsors and delivered a short speech about what they want to experience inside the airport. Miss Uganda was was chosen over 56 other contestants for her eloquence and meaningful content of her answer.
