Sharon Obara has been named Miss World Kenya 2021, taking over from Wavinya Maria.
Obara was crowned during an event held at The Trademark Hotel in Nairobi on Saturday evening.
Chantou Kwamboka and Mwihaki Njogu were the first and second runners up respectively while Mokeira Onchiri took home the people’s choice award.
The pageant featured different categories, including dance segment, cultural wear, and the evening gown category. ICT Cabinet Secretary Joe Mucheru and Nairobi Women Representative Esther Passaris were among the guests at the event.
“As a ministry, we will step up and support this pageant. The kind of beauty and talent witnessed here today is one that cannot be undermined. Kenya has a lot of beauty,” said CS Mucheru in his speech.
Ashleys CEO Terry Mungai, who is the owner and CEO of the Miss World Kenya franchise, said, “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.”
Mungai, Miss World Kenya 2018 Magline Jeruto, Big Ted, Robert Burale, and gospel singer Size 8 were part of the judging panel.
Obara will represent Kenya at the Miss World competition in Puerto Rico in December.
I wish Miguna Miguna told Kenyans how muuaji Raila’s SA based company exported thousands of tonnes of contaminated/poisonous/cancer maize to Kenya in 08/09.He should also tell them how he received it in Kenya as chairman of STRATEGIC GRAIN RESERVE UNIT and how he insisted that the consignment was fit for human consumption despite being declared unfit by KEBS.Finally tell them who was to benefit from it and how expired Njenga Karume re-routed it to Kibera and how it reached all parts of Kenya killing thousands of people.
Good point @Maxiley. Black is beautiful. I'm sure our Maxiley would choose Alek Wek over Obara. Most African ladies on the other hand prefer donning weaves or wigs to have the appearance of long hair. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
She is very beautiful as she represents Mzungu not Kenyan's or Africans.
The title of this article should read "Sharon Obara- Crowned Miss Kenya representing white community (Western nations) in Kenya".
Majority of Kenyan's and Africans skin color does not look anything like that.
Majority of Kenyan's and Africans hair does not look like that ( This is Mzungu's hair)
The dress has nothing to do with Kenyans or Africans.
Whose standards are these? Mzungu's standards.
Those who set the Mzungu standards, when were they Kenyan's to tell us who is beautiful and who is not.
What is good for the west is very damaging to Kenyan's and Africans.
Kenyan's be careful not to be white washed and be replaced by the colonizer just like it was done to native indians in America.
Luckily, we are in the last days of our mental and physical slavery- Time for revelation and restoration.
We just have to wait patiently as the change of seasons take effect and we can represent ourselves with confidence the way we really are ( Black nation) with all black attributes in our nations.
Congratulations on your beauty.
No Kenyan or African has such original hair. We are in times of truth. To the Kenyan and African- this is fake hair. Therefore to represent Kenyan's and Africans you must be real not fake. This is alot of effort to white wash Kenyan's and Africans.
She is the black face representing the western world in Kenya and Africa. However, the time to make Mzungu's hair the standard of beauty among the blacks is gone. It is neither desirable nor achievable. We have gone the full circle and are turning a corner. The "black nation" is waking up to who we are and no amount of money spent on advertisement can turn the clock.
Beauty to the eyes of the "black nation" is very different to the beauty beheld by the "Roman Empire"- the western nations.
The "black nations time is on the horizon". We are still on the colonizers clock.
" Ee mungu nguvu yetu"!!
No double she is beautiful.But whose standards are we applying here. Its so unfortunate that we africans pride in our culture,traditions as unique,and yet we are still so colonized in our application of eurocentric standards of beauty, when it comes to our women.If you double me, check that picture again.
Shameful.We are tacitly saying that,dark skinned,short haired,and curvaceous women of african or negroid physical attributes cannot be considered beautiful on an international level.
We africans are our own enemy. If we do not promulgate what is "ours" who will? Certainly you do not expect mzungu to go around promoting african beauty,unless,its for his own selfish interest.Like in getting himself a pretty african woman. Alek Wek was ridiculed by agood number of africans for her dark complexion.Interestingly,its the mzungu world that turned her into a fashion model.Go figure.
