A Nairobi court has dismissed a case filed by Roshanara Ibrahim, the former Miss Kenya 2016 contestant who was dethroned about five months ahead of the ongoing Miss World contest in the US.
The court dismissed Roshanara’s petition against Ashleys Kenya Ltd, Mrs Terry Mungai and the reigning Miss World Kenya 2016 Everlyn Njambi as lacking any legal basis.
The franchise holders stripped her of the title on what they termed as breach of their code of conduct, after which Roshanara went to court to challenge the action.
Following this, Everlyn Njambi, the former Miss Kenya, Kiambu, was crowned the new Miss World Kenya and is currently representing the country in Miss World International in USA, a one-month event that started two weeks ago.
“I'm happy to state that the court was not swayed by all the theatrics that had preceded the case and that justice has prevailed in the end amidst all the false narratives and claims that had been propagated in the media,” Terry Mungai, the CEO Ashleys Kenya Ltd, the Miss World Kenya franchise holders, said yesterday.
“We were always confident that the law would be upheld by our robust justice system.
The office of Miss World Kenya will continue to uphold and protect the integrity of the franchise and we believe this judgement will also go a long way in guiding aspiring models,” she added.
