Miss Rwanda contestants to receive special skills on public speaking
The move comes barely a fortnight after contestants in Southern Province left the public in total shock for their inability to express themselves during the last auditions held in Huye district.
Even though most of the girls possessed the physical attributes that are a benchmark in the beauty pageant, lack of proficiency in both English and French totally let them down leaving the audience in total awe.
But that is about to take a turn, at least according to Sandra Teta spokesperson of Miss Rwanda 2014. Sandra, who was speaking during a celebrity show dubbed Ten Super 10 on Radio10 said that Miss Rwanda is a national figure and as such she ought to be able to speak with ease especially in public.
“The fifteen finalists shall be put in a boot camp where they will learn different skills on public speaking. They will also learn other important values.”
It’s not so long ago that the minister for Sports and Culture Hon. Protais Mitali, who was present during the pre-selection exercise in Southern Province, expressed his concerns over the same issue.
The minister challenged the girls to up their speaking skills as well as develop an inner confident acumen.
So far all the four provinces have selected their three respective candidates with Kigali city warming up for the last auditions on 9th February ahead of the grand finale on Saturday 22nd February at Petit Stade Remera.
