22 year old Jescar Mponda has been crowned the Miss Malawi 2022, in a highly contested beauty pageant held in Lilongwe, last night.
Hlezipe Jade Chikhwaza and Roberta Kanjelo are the first princess and second princess respectively.
For emerging the Malawi’s beauty queen, Mponda who is a fourth year Business Administration student at MUBAS has received one million kwacha, a weeklong tour to Dubai and a cosmetic package.
Tourism and Culture Minister Michael Usi further reminded the beauty queen about the need to preserve the country’s culture and its values.
In another development, former Miss Malawi Tionge Munthali who has been on the throne for four years was barred from the ceremony, for dressing inappropriately.
Munthali has since taken to social media to vent her anger, over not being allowed to hand over the crown that she has had for the past 4 years.
“i was told that i could not handover the crown because i was inappropriately dressed, mind you i have been reining queen for four f……… years! i could have stayed in my house tonight and watched TV,” Munthali wrote.
However some members of the public have criticized her for being foulmouthed, arguing it is a conduct not befitting the crown.
