Miss World Zimbabwe Emily Kachote Dethroned After Nude Photo Scandal
And the crown comes offâ€¦
Miss World Zimbabwe,Emily Kachote, has been stripped of her title amid a nude photo leak on WhatsApp, local reports confirm.
The Miss Zimbabwe Trust released a statement regarding their decision to pull Kachote's title, saying that the 25-year-old beauty engaged in "immoral behavior."
Their statement continued, "The Miss Zimbabe executive board would like to inform the nation that it has decided to dethrone Miss Emily Kachote as Miss World Zimbabwe 2015. Being in a relationship, sexual advances to anyone and any behavior categorized as immoral by the Miss Zimbabwe Trust is grounds for instant disqualification and dethronement."
Kachote, a financial adviser, confirmed to reporters that the nude photos did exist and that she thought they were leaked by an ex-boyfriend.
She posted a message on Facebook following the board's decision that read: "There are two kinds of pain: the sort of pain that makes you strong, or useless pain; the sort of pain that's only suffering. I have no patience for useless things. For now I'm waiting for my attorney then I will hold a press conference before the end of the week."
And earlier this morning, she wrote, "For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain, there can be no mercy. There is but one rule: hunt or be hunted."
Just last year, the 2014 Miss World Zimbabwe,Thabiso Phiri, was also caught in the midst of a nude photo scandal. At the time, the board insisted that Phiri resigned from the position on her own, however, many critics of the pageant argued otherwise.
