The 2015 Miss Zimbabwe, Emily Kachote, has been stripped (no pun intended) of her title after nude pics of her leaked via Whatsapp (this net & jilted lovers are going to finish many careers, I tell you!)
Miss Kachote, 25, broke rules that insist beauty queens must never pose nude, the pageant board said in a statement amid claims the model’s former lover deliberately leaked the images.
In a bizarre twist, Miss Kachote’s predecessor Thabiso Phiri, 22, was also stripped of the Miss Zimbabwe title – which automatically enters the winner into the Miss World competition – after nude photographs she had sent to her boyfriend were leaked and went viral.
In a statement, the Miss Zimbabwe pageant board said Miss Kachote ‘violated the rules and regulations governing the pageant’, referring to nude images of that appeared on Whatsapp, according to a local tabloid newspaper.
‘Winners of the Miss World Zimbabwe beauty pageant whether a title holder or runner-up must not have posed nude professionally or socially in all forms of media,’ the organisers said.
