Some even claimed that Kenzo had played a backdoor role in the process that saw her win the beauty contest. Some observers have said she didn’t deserve the title.

Tumukunde acknowledged that she is friends with Eddy Kenzo and that he is also close to her family.

"He is my friend and a family friend, a friend to my sisters and to me,” Tumukunde said, adding that they are not dating.

She also noted that she is currently “single.”

On claims that she didn't deserve the win, she recently said: "Since I'm not a judge. I don't know. I don't know where people got that information from but they are free to say what they want. The judges did what they did and I also believe I did my best.”

She added: "When you have a dream, you work hard toward it."

Hannah Karema Tumukunde, 20, was crowned Miss Uganda 2023/24 on March 18 at an event held at UMA Multipurpose Hall.

When she won, Kenzo was among the first to congratulate her on social media. He tweeted: “Congratulations miss Hanah kalema Tumukunde-missuganda2023."

In the second position was artiste Cindy's sister Whitney Martha Ademun while Prossy Agwang settled for the third position. Jerusha Muwanguzi and Jesca Sserwadda occupied the two final places in this year's beauty pageant.

The Miss Uganda pageant was last held in 2019 before the Covid-19 outbreak which forced the break.

Meanwhile, Tumukunde is in her Form Six ‘vacation’ and she took a subject combination of History, Literature and Divinity (HLD) at her 'A' level.

She is considering doing either Law or Journalism when she joins university.
