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.”

“There have been stories on several Kenyan blogs
that Miss Kenya 2016, which is me, is dating
Moses Kuria. I want to clarify that I am not in any
relationship with him. I don’t even know him. I
was really shocked at first to read that I am
dating a person whom I am not even aware who
he was.” she said.
