Sharon Obara to Represent Kenya in Puerto Rico
A new era was unleashed on the evening of 28 August at the Trademark Hotel Nairobi, as Sharon Obara was crowned Miss World Kenya.
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 to everyone present and made the event a success. She also lauded the government for the continued support from the Government to make the event a success.
“I have waited to hear the words that the government will support The Miss World Kenya franchise. Not that I haven’t heard these words before but I am happy to hear them from a man who truly means it”, said Terry while holding back tears.
Of the guests present, were ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru and Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris.
Terry Mungai, Miss World Kenya 2018, Magline Jeruto, Big Ted, Robert Burale, and gospel singer Size 8 led the judging panel.
Sharon will represent the country in Puerto Rico in December at the global competition.
