'Officials got drunk during Miss Zim boot-camp'

HARARE - Dethroned Miss Zimbabwe Emily Kachote has hit out at the Miss Zimbabwe Trust saying they are not qualified to talk about morals when the pageant’s officials were getting drunk during the contestants' boot camp.

Kachote was dethroned as Miss Zimbabwe title holder last week over her nude pictures which were said to be circulating on social media.

The beauty has however hit at the Miss Zimbabwe Trust saying it was being hypocritical. “They wasted my time, all the time I was in boot camp I could have been working. My job is based on clients, the more clients I get the more money I get. And I lost out on all this as well,” she said.

Kachote added that their questioning of her probity is not fair. “Why didn’t they just say we don’t want anyone with a past? Marry said I don’t want a Queen who drinks, but I last had a drink about 15 months ago. What do they have to tell me about drinking when they were the ones getting drunk in boot camp in front of the girls?”

Kachote told the Daily News on Sunday that during her short term as the Queen she never received support at all from the Trust. “When the nude pictures story was written, I did not even receive any kind of support, including moral.

“I think they should have just had the courtesy to call and check up on me on how I was feeling following those media reports but they never did. I think they need God, because they cannot handle things in the proper manner.

“I feel that they did not want me to be the queen in the first place. They never supported me at all. They never offered me support in any form. Or even checking up on me as the Queen on how I was holding up.”

However, Tendai Chirau, Miss Zimbabwe Trust’s communications and programmes manager said Kachote was lying because she had confessed to them.

“She confessed to having been drunk in such a way that would have exposed her. She said she had had drinks with the guy and that she had slept with him as well, therefore she would have had the pictures taken.

“We have not seen the pictures but the confession is enough, we cannot have a queen with a possibility of nude pictures circulating. We will be crowning Annie-Grace Mutambu in a fortnight,” said Chirau.

He added that Kachote had violated Regulation 5 of the Miss World Zimbabwe Trust reads that one should not have posed nude in any form of the media.

But the beauty Queen said that she was not given a fair chance to defend herself. “When they called me for the first disciplinary hearing, they did not even alert me that it was a hearing. I could have brought my lawyer along with me. To my surprise they started asking me questions in that meeting, which I realised was part of the disciplinary hearing procedures,” she said.

Kachote said she was not given anything but stress by the Trust. “I did not even get a cent for my reign and they still have the car. At one point they called me to their office and when I delayed, they called me and I told them that we had run out of fuel. They just said see you when you get here - so you can imagine that kind of treatment.”

Kachote must keep a low profile and move on. Things will get nasty when amai General responds.She must understand she is dealing with a mafia syndicate. That big dhara will not be there to save her...
