It is not clear, why the current Miss World Kenya has been stripped of her title by the the beauty pageant franchise. Roshanara Ebrahim was crowned the fairest of them all at the Kenya finals of the 2016 Miss World Kenya.

However, the turn of events have seen her get stripped of both the crown and title because she did not "uphold a strict code of conduct that expects beauty queens to manage their public and private life."

A press statement sent out to media houses by Ashley's Kenya, confirmed that Roshanara is no longer  the Kenyan representative in the prestigious international pageant, she will be replaced.

Terry Muigai the Franchaise director explains, "Effective immediately, Roshanara Ebrahim will not be representing the country both domestically and internationally as Miss World Kenya. A grave situation has come to our attention that is in breach of our Code of Conduct and our contract with the reigning Miss World Kenya 2016 Roshanara. We uphold a strict code of conduct that expects beauty queens to manage their public and private life."

The statement doesn't expound of what the "grave situation is".

Roshanara did not expound on that either but chose to respond to being stripped of her title.

She said, "It is with great sadness that I accept the decision of Miss World Kenya office to relinquish me of my duties as Miss World Kenya 2016. I urge aspiring beauty queens to ensure their personal life does not affect their role as Miss World Kenya. I wish my successor the best as we look to clinching top position in the Miss World competition later in the year."

Look out for her successor who will be announced "in due course".
