As a result of the tragic accident that killed seven Matsha students last Friday, the annual beauty pageant Miss Rural Area Development Programme (RADP) has been postponement.

The grand finale was supposed to be held at Sir Seretse Khama Barracks on Saturday.

A press release from the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development says the decision was taken to postpone the Miss RADP 2015 pageant and its associated activities until further notice.  All activities that were to take place ahead of the pageant, including the Tuesday press briefing, had been cancelled. In an interview with Showbiz, a deputy director at the ministry, Delic Sehunwe, said they couldn’t proceed because the pageant was part of the RADP.
