More about Gladys Kyotungire
In February 2013 she had a chat with New Vision Reporter Esther Namirimu and shared about her life;
What is your most memorable moment?
I have two memorable moments in life. One when I was elected head girl of Merryland High School, Entebbe in 2005/2006 and when I won the Miss Uganda UK beauty pageant.
Which Ugandan song don’t you get tired of listening to?
Valu Valu by Jose Chameleon. I love that song. It was played when I was announced Miss Uganda UK.
What is keeping you busy in Uganda now?
I am here to campaign against child sacrifice.
Why child sacrifice and not going green?
When I was a child, I narrowly escaped being sacrificed. We had a house maid who had connections to some Senegalese people. She asked me to go with her to buy something from the shop, but we did not go back home for three days. I cried the entire three days, then a man saw us and asked her where she was taking me. She did not answer. I was saved by this man who took me to a local television and that is how I was rescued.
This campaign raises awareness on the loss of potential the world experiences when children suffer from hunger.
Gladys then travelled to Karamoja, Uganda, where WFP is supporting communities achieve Zero Hunger. Read her insights here:
