Miss World Kenya Magline Jeruto’s Winning Night

Miss Kenya pageant winners are known for being positive representatives of our country on the international platform that is MISS WORLD but this is not always a given. Sometimes, you can’t help but cringe as you watch the finals hoping they don’t slip up at any point. The 2017 competition that happened Saturday night, luckily, was one that many Kenyans watched proudly. Magline Jeruto from Elgeyo Marakwet stole the hearts of many in Sanya, China and across the globe.

Magline rocking a TWA (teeny weeny afro)  and a stunning pink, bedazzled, sleeveless cutout pants gown who was crowned Miss Kenya in September scooped the top 5 spot, from a total of 118 participants.

She was also crowned Miss Africa! Coincidentally, Magline does have an uncanny resemblance to award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o.

The winner of the Miss World Beauty Pageant for the year 2017 was India’s Manushi Chhillar. Congratulations Magline and all the winners.
