There has been a rumor that Miss Uganda 2018 Quinn Abenakyo didn’t qualify to graduate this year due to uncompleted failed papers (retakes) and other issues.

On Thursday last week, Abenakyo Quinn was among those that graduated with a Bachelors of Business Accounting during the 69th Makerere University Kampala annual graduation ceremony but her name appearing neither in the graduation booklet nor the graduation list raised eyebrows among other graduands and critics.

However, the Makerere University Business School Management has come out to dismiss the reports of being awarded the degree out of favoritism, terming them hoax.

According to the MUBS Spokesperson Simon Peter Odoki, the graduation booklet was printed before the beauty queen of Africa cleared with the institution.

“Hey. The story circulating about Abenakyo is false. She completed her course Bachelor of Business Computing. Her name was read first. Not in the book because it was printed before she cleared,” he clarified.

According to the policies at Makerere University, for one to graduate from the institution, he/she is required to have successfully cleared with their Academic Units, Halls of Residence, as well as the University Library, Hospital, Police Station and Finance Department.

Quinn Abenakyo made herself a name globally when she not only became the First Ugandan to reach the stage of the final 30 competitors of Miss World, but also becoming the first from the Country to win Miss World Africa and finishing third in the whole Miss World beauty pageant.
