Miss World Kenya stripped of title amid claims of a rash ‘personal life’

Miss World Kenya 2016 Roshanara Ebrahim has been stripped of her title.

According to Ashley’s, owners of the Miss World Kenya franchise, the decision was due to personal reasons.

In a statement, Ashley’s  stated that Roshanara Ebrahim will no longer be representing the country both domestically and internationally as Miss World Kenya.

“A grave situation has come to our attention that is in breach of our code of conduct and our contract with the reigning Miss world Kenya 2016. We uphold a strict code of conduct that expects beauty queens to manage their private and public life,” read part of the statement.

Miss Ebrahim also released a statement which hinted that her personal life could have cost her the title.

“It is with great sadness that I accept the decision of Miss World Kenya office to relinquish me of my duties as Miss World Kenya 2016. I urge aspiring beauty queens to ensure their personal life does not affect their role as Miss World Kenya. I wish my successor the best as we look to clinching top position in the miss world competition later in the year,” said Roshanara.

Ashley’s are looking into crowning the first runners up Evelyne Njambi from Kiambu County as the reigning Miss World Kenya 2016.

Earlier this year rumors, surfaced online that Miss Ebrahim was allegedly in a relationship with an MP. She however refuted the claims as malicious and aimed at tarnishing her reputation.
