The reigning Miss Heritage Botswana, Kgomotsego Ntsima represented Botswana at the just-ended Miss Heritage World where she scooped position six out of the 53 world beauties that she was competing with.

The Miss Heritage World was held in Sandton, South Africa on November 14 where the beauties from 54 nations spent three weeks in preparation and related assignments. She paraded her 1.74m grandeur in a journey accompanied by her manager, Bakang Keimetswe and the co-director of Miss Heritage Botswana, Khumo Leburu.

She told The Monitor that the love she has for cultural heritage and the desire to inspire other young people, motivated her to join Miss Heritage. Ntsima said apart from the competition, she learnt a lot as contestants exchanged experiences on life and culture from their countries. She was invited by the Croatian embassy in Pretoria where she provoked the diplomats’ interest to visit Botswana soon. Her presentation that impressed the judges most was a poem and a traditional dance she offered while adorned in traditional leather attire, provoking ululations from fellow Africans in the competition.
