As curtains are closing in for her, it is only fit that we know when she will be handing over her crown. Miss Zambia has recently invited Palesa to Zambia as she was handing over her crown. Curtains are closing in last year’s Queens and a season for new Queens is just here. Miss World will also soon announce the Miss World date. Miss Cote D'Ivoire is also handing the crown to the next Queen and Palesa is leaving soon as she will be witnessing her sister in pageantry handing her crown.
“Last night Your Predecessor (Miss Zambia 2020) @vanessa_ukevwe_chinyemba said it all during her final words - (… Foster a change for the betterment of yourself and for others.) Congratulations to the newly crowned Miss Zambia 20201/22 @natasha_miss_zambia2022. By inviting me you asked Botswana to be part of such a beautiful moment, Rea Leboga, Le Kamoso. May we continue to nurture these relationships for generations,” Palesa said during Miss Zambia 2022/23.
“I wish you nothing but the best in your reign may it reflect grace, bravery, and thoughtfulness to others. And remember, have fun!”
Miss Botswana has in the past been accused of opening the Miss Botswana auditions late and there sabotaging the incoming Queen from performing and preparing herself at Miss World. It’s been many years now that they have been accused of this but for many years now and this has not changed. Preparation on time and calling auditions on time is the only way can perform better internationally. South Africa has already auditioned and has even chosen their finalist while Miss Botswana is waiting for a later date. This is one of the major changes we are anticipating in the Miss Botswana pageantry. We are looking forward to these kinds of changes.
We love how South Africa is beating the clock to host the Miss South Africa. This will afford the next Queen the chance to be trained and be prepared both mentally, and financially to be ready to compete at Miss World. Pageantry takes more than just winning a crown being able to collaborate with designers, Makeup artists, nail technicians, hairstylists,s and many more things to ensure it is not just a crown but is about being ready and equipped to compete internationally. This is a Queen who needs to be able to take international stages without fear or hesitation.
However, we love the huge improvements they have brought this year. They were able to choose someone who is not only intelligent but beautiful too. By far Palesa Molefe is the most bubbly and radiant Queen who is bold and fierce. She is not afraid to stand out in a room full of influential people. She is a mover and a shaker. We hope that as she will be handing over her crown she will hand it over to someone who matches her capability or even better. We have missed such kind of personality before and we wish to see people who have both the beauty and the brain as well as being confident. We love the Queen for leaving her own legacy.
