Gaborone — The crowning of Thata Kenosi (21) as the 50th Miss Botswana on Friday has not only brought happiness to the nation, but to her family and her village of Moshupa.
Thata showed signs that she might scoop the crown when the 12 contestants paraded on swim wear.
She adorably strutted her fairly long legs with confidence.
It did not come as a surprise when she emerged in the top five.
Her oral answer to the judges was simple and precise, though she nearly freaked out due to the booing from fans.
She said Economic Stimulus Programme (ESP) was among programmes that could be used to address youth unemployment.
Thata, whose first princess is Oabona Kamona while the second princess is Phatsimo Baoagi, lives according to Christian values, as explained by her joyful mother Kgalalelo Kenosi.
Kenosi said her child was raised by both parents and while she was young, she liked to dance.
The new queen loves children, a statement which was confirmed why her project that would deal be deal with under privileged and mentally disabled children.
Thata, who has two younger sisters, does not class herself though surprisingly she is from a moderately well-off family.
The public administration student has peculiar attachment to poor families.
Maybe she got some of her personal attributes from her late father Pulaentle Kenosi.
Hopefully, Thata will bring glory to the country following the Miss World due in December 20 in Washington DC.
