The experts pointed out that Josiane Mwiseneza’s fame was due to the sympathy felt after the media reported that she had traveled long distances and was injured on the way, while she was on her way to Miss Rwanda’s selection in the western province of Rwanda.
The fervor around the candidacy of Josiane Mwiseneza is such that it is described as “historic” by several media.
However Media Experts like Dr. KayumbaChristopher also senior Journalist and Lecturer at the University of Rwanda analyses that “Unless there are no clear rules on how Miss Rwanda winner is decided, I don’t see how Josiane can hold the pageant hostage! Her circumstance gave her sympathy supporters but does that alone win you the thing?”
Kayumba was quoting a Tweeted statement by Edmund Kagire also Senior Journalist who wrote that “The dilemma for Miss Rwanda organisers and judges gets bigger daily. You don’t want to be in their shoes. Though not her own making, from the look of things Josiane has held the pageant hostage. Give her the crown you’re damned, don’t give it to her you’re still damned.”
Until now none can confirm who will be crowned Miss Rwanda at the highly anticipated grand finale scheduled for tomorrow at 6.30pm, at Intare Conference Arena, Rusororo, where the winner will be announced.
Organisers promised a colourful event, where the finalists will showcase their talents and present their projects before Rwandans.
For Josiane, to be crowned would allow her to be a voice and an example for girls in the rural world to give them confidence and to make them aware of their value and the fact that all girls have the same rights.
“Even though she has presented a good project aiming at the elimination of malnutrition in the community, this may be a motive, but on the other side this Lady may be encountering difficulties to convince the Judges that she deserves the crown,” A source familiar with the organization of Miss Rwanda told TOPAFRICANEWS.
“Mwiseneza gains sympathy!. That’s not support that can explain that she is really who Rwandans want. Her values are the ones they want. Also what she presented provoked reactions among Rwandans who want the Rwandan cultural values to be strongly expressed in the competition, but it is also a clear indication that Rwandans are fed up with the Miss Rwanda organization unless it is improved, “the same source tells this website
