The event is back after a one year hiatus due to COVID-19

New Queen in Town...Sharon Obara.

Ladies and gentlemen, Sharon Obara is this year's Miss World Kenya. Obara was crowned last evening at The Trademark Hotel, Nairobi.

Chantou Kwamboka and Mwihaki Njogu took second and third place, respectively. Mokeira Onchiri took home the people’s choice award.

Obara whose biggest fear is living a mediocre life, takes over the crown from Wavinya Maria, who was emotional while handing over the throne to her.

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.

“I have waited to hear the words that the government will support The Miss World Kenya franchise. Not that I haven’t heard this words before but I am happy to hear them from a man who truly means it”, said Terry while holding back tears.

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.
