On 11 July 2015, Uganda got another crown bearer for the Miss Uganda throne. Zahara Muhammad Nakiyaga beat 20 contestants to the crown. She stood out from the moment she was crowned Miss Uganda Central. She sealed it all with an impressive performance during the Q&A session. But we have been wondering how good or bad her sense of style is.  It turns out the 23 year old is indeed fashion forward. One thing that stood out as the team went stalking is how she rocks the hijab look stylishly. In an era where celebrities are trying to show as much skin as possible,  we may have a finally got a breathe of fresh air-literally. Here are some of the pictures got from the successful hunt.
