Emily Kachote was on Wednesday dethroned as Miss Zimbabwe World 2015 after she was photos of her posing naked were posted online by her former lover.
“I was hoping the pictures would have been deleted by now since it happened a long time ago and I last spoke to the guy a year ago and I no longer have anything to do with [him] since what we had ended a long time ago,” Kachote was quoted as saying.
“I have always suspected that those pictures would circulate, but it happened a long time ago, and I believe my past does not determine where I am going.”
She will be replaced by Annie Grace Mutambu who was her first princess.
Kachote’s predecessor, Thabiso Phiri, was also dethroned after a similar scandal last year
The Miss Zimbabwe World board confirmed the latest development.
“The Miss Zimbabwe executive board would like to inform the nation that it has resolved to dethrone Miss Emily Kachote as Miss World Zimbabwe 2015,” read a statement released Wednesday.
In its statement Wednesday, the Miss Zimbabwe World Trust said: “It should be noted that during the scouting and the preceding boot camp all aspiring models appended their signatures to these regulations and undertook to abide by them.
“The confession by Miss Emily Kachote that she once posed nude and her admission of the existence of the photos led the Trust to dethrone her since her conduct was a precise violation of rules governing the Trust.
“The First Princess Miss Annie Grace Mutambu has since replaced Miss Emily Kachote. In its quest to have a probity queen the Trust will not hesitate to effect its rules and regulations governing it.”
