Beauty queens have in the past been blamed of being all beauty and no brains. Fresh from winning this year’s Miss World Kenya pageant, Miss World Kenya Sharon Obara made a curious statement which is likely to attract praise and criticism in equal measure. While some may see sense in what she proposed, others may dismiss it as a dumb statement by a brainless talking bimbo.
Appearing on KBC’s Easy Friday which was hosted by Shiksha Aurora, the recently crowned beauty queen decried the wide berth that authorities and the relevant institutions have given the modeling industry. She complained that the industry has been largely ignored, and not given the support it should by the government. She then went ahead to propose that perhaps, it would be of help for the Education Ministry to incorporate the art of applying make-up in the new Competency Based Curriculum.
Sharon Obara who is the newly crowned Miss World Kenya, was crowned at an event held at The Trademark Hotel in the presence of dignitaries, government officials, former beauty queens, and other invited guests. Chantou Kwamboka and Mwihaki Njogu took second and third place, respectively. Mokeira Onchiri took home the people’s choice award.
Sharon, whose biggest fear is living a mediocre life, took over the crown from Wavinya Maria, who was emotional while handing over the throne to her.
The event saw guests entertained to the different categories in the pageant, including the dance segment, cultural wear, and the evening gown category.
ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru and Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris were some of the government officials present. The CS was accompanied by Jomo Kenyatta and Jomo Pratt.
“As a ministry, we will step up and support this pageant. The kind of beauty and talent witnessed here today is one that cannot be undermined. Kenya has a lot of beauty”, said Mucheru as he made his remarks.
On her part, an emotional Terry Mungai, the franchise owner and CEO, was thankful for everyone present and was grateful to hear that the government would step in and support the work she has been doing with her able team for years.
