As JM Promotions crowns its fifth Miss Uganda UK queen, the pageant is partnering with Jubilee Campaign UK to raise awareness against child sacrifice in Uganda; a barbaric practice that seems to be on the increase in Uganda and Africa driven by superstition, exploitation, witchcraft and extreme poverty. The Miss Uganda UK 2015 winner who will be crowned on 7th November at the Boleyn Banqueting Suite in East Ham, London will become the face and voice of the campaign that is also lobbying for the president and speaker of the parliament of Uganda to introduce laws that can protect children from this crime.


“Children and parents live in fear of kidnap and murder. Innocent children’s body parts are cut off and used in ritual ceremonies in the belief that they will be consumed by spirits in exchange for good health, riches, success or solve other problems,” read a statement from Jubilee Campaign who were delighted to have the additional voice of Miss Uganda UK to their campaign.
