From the day the applications started streaming in, it was clear. Competition was tough. The competition has raised its bar. One could mistake it for a Miss Namibia competition. With several years of experience in the beauty pageant world, the contest organiser Kenneth Machava has never been this challenged.
“Who do you think will become Miss,” he asks. With zilch experience, I too shrug my shoulders as every girl showed remarkable potential. Not only was beauty evident, but the girls had talent too. From dancing to singing to debating skills, you can mention it all. And oh, we had chefs in the team too!
What we expected to be a challenging weekend turned out to be quite the opposite. The girls were treated to a weekend excursion trip and quite surprising, they all got along so well, the maturity level of the girls was extraordinary. D-day came and the girls couldn’t be more excited. Glitz and glamour was the talk of the night. The judges didn’t have it easy either, but a decision had to be made, which saw 17 year-old Latifah Makaula walk away with the Miss Crayfish Crown, flanked by her princesses Elise Shiimi (2nd) and Nastasha Wilson as her first princess.
