'Miss Zimbabwe' steps down amid nude pictures allegations

By Sowetan Live | Aug 05, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 50 ]

According to Nehandaradio.com, 22 year-old university law student decided to step down after nude pictures of her went viral.

Phiri is said to have sent the photographs to her lover, who in turn allegedly leaked them via social media platforms.

The Miss Zimbabwe Trust however made no mention of the photos in a press release they published on Friday to announce Phiri’s departure.

"Due to circumstances unforeseen at the time of the holding of the Miss Zimbabwe pageant on the 14th of June 2014 and which circumstances are peculiar and personal to the winner of the pageant Miss Thabiso Phiri, it has become imperative after her disclosure of the said circumstances that she steps down as Miss Zimbabwe.

"It must be emphasised that the decision by Miss Thabiso Phiri to step down is personal to her and no duress or undue influence has been brought to bear upon her in making this decision,” the statement said.

According to www.globalnationspageants.com, pageants rules state that: ‘Contestant must never have, or will not during her reign, pose for any photography, video, or film associated with nudity or pornography. Nor has she ever, or is presently involved with prostitution or any form of employment which involves partial or complete nudity.’

First princess Tendai Hunda is expected to replace Phiri.

Eish, this social media thing. It always comes back to haunt you. Keep your privates private girls. Tomorrow you meet Mr Perfect, and then you end up losing him because of your own stupidity and origheid.

I nust say that this stupid fashion is something I also find unfathomable. Particualrly now that one knows how quickly such things slip their leash and find their way into the twitter etc realm.

this thing has just a simple solution, DO NOT TAKE NUDE PICTURES, AND DO NOT MAKE SEX TAPES, even if you think you are not famous.

It is unfortunate for the lady but I hope the likes of JZ can learn a thing or two from this lady, if you do anything that is regarded as having no integrity or embarassment to the nation you step down.
