Lesotho to host Miss University Africa

In preparation for Miss University Africa which will be held in 2020, Beauty Pageant Association of Lesotho on Saturday evening staged a beauty pageant; Miss Lesotho 2019 in Maseru.
The Association’s Chairperson, Tlali Tlali said that Lesotho would be hosting over 40 countries including South Africa, Cameroon, Egypt, Gambia and Nigeria to mention a few, which he said would be part of the beauty pageant.
He asserted: “Miss University Africa is envisaged to bring a good long lasting relationship of the countries and create a platform to showcase Lesotho’s heritage to the nations with which she would be participating towards the development of her economy and tourism.”
According to him, a 23 year-old Palesa Makara of Khubetsoana in the outskirts of Maseru who is a former student of Lesotho Agricultural College, was crowned Miss Lesotho 2019.
Tlali noted that Ms. Makara is going to be a Brand Ambassador of Mpilo Boutique Hotel.
When approached for comment, Ms. Makara refused to divulge more details about her being the winner – except to admit she was happy – indicating she was not in the position to talk to the media until she had been given a go ahead.
Prior to the beauty pageant, Basotho Enterprise Development Corporation (BEDCO) held Arts and Crafts day where crafters showcased their products on stalls in preparation for Miss University Africa.
