Miss World Kenya contests dethronement, demands apology
Former Miss World Kenya Roshanara Ebrahim has contested the decision to strip her of her title and wants the franchise holder to issue an apology.
Ms Ebrahim has written to the proprietor of the Miss World Kenya franchise Terry Mungai to demand for an apology since she was not informed of the purported dethronement.
In a letter addressed to Ashley’s, Ms Ebrahim’s lawyers say that she had no knowledge and was neither informed about the dethronement and only learnt about it through the media.
She insisted she had not breached any code of conduct and has conducted herself in a manner consistent with her status.
She further states that the statement issued by Ashley’s under her name, which stated she had accepted the decision to strip her of the title, was false.
Early this month, owners of the Miss World Kenya franchise issued a statement announcing the dethronement of Ms Ebrahim.
“A grave situation has come to our attention that is in breach of our code of conduct and our contract with the reigning Miss world Kenya 2016. We uphold a strict code of conduct that expects beauty queens to manage their private and public life,” read part of the statement.
