Many people think of beauty pageants as beauty events that end at crowning but the reality of the heavy responsibilities and expectations hit the contestants off stage when all the glam and lights are hushed. Former Miss World Kenya 2016 Roshanara Ebrahim would know better as she was earlier this year dethroned for what was termed as breach of the code of conducts by the franchise holder AshleysKenya Ltd.
The beauty queen who was allegedly involved with a local MP stepped aside without drama but went on to contest the decision in court in a bid to save face demanding an apology from Terry Mungai claiming she didn’t use official channel to dispose her instead she learnt through the media that she had lost her crown.
She has unfortunately lost that battle as the court threw out the case saying her claims against Ashleys had no legal grounds. She was replaced by the first runner up Evelyne Njambi a 23 year old interior design student.
Expressing her delight in the verdict the CEO of Ashleys Kenya Ltd Terry Mungai saying justice had prevailed.
“I’m happy to state that the court was not swayed by all the theatrics that had preceded the case and that justice has prevailed in the end amidst all the false narratives and claims that had been propagated in the media,” Ashleys Kenya Ltd, Terry Mungai, was quoted by the Standard.
Well, The beauty queen lives to fight another day.
