HiPipo Team

We salute thousands of women that are actively involved in transforming Uganda and the world at large.

As part of global activities to celebrate the International Women’s Day and the Women’s Month of March, HiPipo, for the very first time, released its list of 50 most Influential Women in Uganda today. This list was contained in the first Money Magazine, which went on the market at the end of March.

The Cambridge Dictionary defines influence as “the ability to have an effect on people or events.”

The 50 women featured here are some of those having a positive effect on people and/or events in Uganda.

Picked from both the private and public sector, the women profiled here include seasoned entrepreneurs, reputable board members and senior executives, respected civil servants, successful politicians, steadfast activists, active diplomats, outstanding members of selected royal families and renowned religious leaders. Some are not Ugandan!

To come up with the 50 most influential women, our team looked at over 300 women; weighing the influence/impact of their work on society. In no particular order, here are the 50 most influential women as per our research.

Janet Kataaha Museveni – Minister of Education and Sports.

Born in June 1948, Janet has been Uganda’s First Lady since 1986. She is currently the Cabinet Minister of Education and Sports, one of the most significant ministries in the country. Before this, she served as Minister for Karamoja Region Affairs and represented Ruhaama in parliament.

Janet Museveni is undoubtedly the most powerful woman in Uganda today.

I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!|
