Miss Zimbabwe Emily Kachote stripped of her title after nude photos surface
HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Miss Zimbabwe has been officially stripped of her title after photographs emerged of the now former beauty queen posing naked.
This is the second consecutive year in which a Miss Zimbabwe winner has been dethroned.
Pageant organizers said Emily Kachote would no longer represent Zimbabwe in the Miss World pageant held in China later this year.
The Miss Zimbabwe Trust said in a statement that they were forced to dethrone Kachote on Wednesday because violated an agreement she signed before the competition, in which contestants are required to swear that they have never posed nude and will not pose nude if they won the title.
Kachote, 25, said the photos were taken before she entered the competition.
Last year Thabiso Phiri was dethroned after photographs of her posing nude surfaced.
