Oweditse Phirinyane remains Queen till 2021

Miss Botswana

As the year comes to end, and as is norm, this time of the year is pageant season. Many countries are hosting their pageants and picking the women who will represent their countries at the next Miss World pageant. However, most countries did not host their pageants this year. Miss World has also cancelled their event due to Covid-19 and travel restrictions.

Even so, South Africa pulled a great one and crowned their Queen. Which saw Shudufhadzo Musida become Miss South Africa. Despite the Covid-19 menace they remained steadfast in their mission to pull of their pageant. Although it should have been the same here at home, it’s unfortunately the contrary. It turns out that the team which had a five year plan to rebrand the Miss Botswana Pageantry failed to do exactly that this year.

However, there is no doubt that Miss Botswana was regaining its momentum and experiencing a turnaround. They brought and worked with the largest sector in the country to rebrand, this saw many designers, and other creatives coming through to beautify the Queen. The team also went to the extent of taking care of the Queen’s wardrobe at the Miss World 2019.

After reigning for a year during her Miss Botswana term, Oweditse Phirinyane, who recently shared her journey with WeekendLife, says her reign will be extended until next year 2021 when the next Queen will be crowned. While some were anticipating that their ‘sweetheart’ Uua Murangi will step in as Queen, it seems the third door that could have possibly pushed her to the throne has shuttered once again.

In an interview with WeekendLife, the current license holder for Miss Botswana, Development Advanced Institute, under Benjamin Raletsatsi, confirmed with this publication, that they had plans of hosting this year. But they could not hence Phirinyane continuing her reign as Miss Botswana.

“Oweditse Fafah Phirinyane is still Miss Botswana until next year when the organisers crown another queen,” said Raletsatsi. “As much as organisers would have liked to host the pageant, the outbreak of Covid-19 affected those plans because everyone was supposed to abide by the regulations set by the government through the Ministry of Health and Wellness.’’

Raletsatsi explained that though they are faced with challenges they are still sticking to their strategies and plans to rebrand Miss Botswana. ‘‘Yes the five year plan to rebrand Miss Botswana still stands and the organisers will continue with the strategy which they had already shared with the media.’’
