Hirschfeld wins Miss Millennium pageant

Maruapula Private School employee Theresa Hirschfeld, scooped the Miss Millennium beauty pageant on Saturday evening.

After failing to grab the title last year, Hirschfeld was determined to make it this time around. Kgomotso Manyeneng, an employee of the University of Botswana (UB), was the first princess while Sheila Dipate became the second princess.     Doreen Makhale went away with the Miss Millennium Personality award.   The pageant, which was held at the Millennium Jazz Restaurant in Mogoditshane, was cancelled on Valentine's Day due to bad weather. Last Saturday's pageant turned out to be an even greater event with a red carpet being laid out for the 12 contestants, including Hirschfeld who only made it to the top five last year.   Everything about the organisation of the pageant was simply superb.  Patrons turned up in large numbers for the event.  A sumptuous dinner was also on offer for the patrons and wine was flowing too.   The set up at the Millennium garden was different all together on Saturday.   If it were not for the contestants who were on parade, one would have mistaken the occasion for a business magnate's wedding ceremony. 

Local diva Nono Siile serenaded the audience with soft music during the show.   Both the contestants and the patrons had a ball during the pageant.   Members of a Gaborone gym, Lepone Gym treated the audience to the aerobics moves.

We import fuel, food,...
