It is now a norm that the annual Miss Millennium beauty contest brings nothing but fun, glitz and glamour whilst revellers dance the night away to endless old school music. On Saturday night, 45-year-old Betty Mbaembae proved to be fairest of them all as she outshined fellow contestants when she scooped the Miss Millennium 2023 crown.

The pageant was also celebrating 15 years running since 2008. Mbaembae started the show in high morale. Her profession parade was fire as she paraded as a shebeen queen (mmaspoto). She entered the parade wearing German print skirt, shirt and headscarf. She was carrying a clay pot on her head and calabash with her hand. While calling clients to buy her traditional beer, she told them that her traditional beer was strictly made of sorghum only. She also complained of some of her customers who get her traditional beer on credit and do not pay. She talked of how her beer helps her take care of her family.

When it comes to evening wear dress, she wore a gorgeous long, green, glittery dress with fur in the neck and hands. She also did well in answering her top five and top three questions. Mbaembae said if she was to be crowned the Miss Millennium queen, as Mogoditshane resident, she would host breast cancer awareness campaigns in the area. She said as a breast cancer survivor, she would ensure that Mogoditshane residents get breast cancer detection services. Her princesses are 59-year-old Kelebeletse Nthobatsang, a teacher by profession and a 41-year-old Shakila Kebabope who won the first and second princesses titles respectively. They also answered questions from the judges brilliantly. Their evening gowns were also stunning. Moreover, all contestants came in prepared to grab the title. The two other women that made it to top five include 47-years-old Terresa Koa from Gabane and Alice Molosiwa also a teacher by profession from Mochudi who played a role of a nurse.
