As you may be aware, Miss Botswana just arrived a couple of hours ago, she has asked for some time with family to rest after a long journey, therefore, at this moment we have not had a chance to debrief to get to the bottom of what exactly transpired behind the Miss World stage.

Once we have full information from her, we will communicate accordingly.

Palesa is now back in the country, why was her arrival not announced as usual?

Miss Botswana’s initial arrival was on Sunday evening but she missed her flight and we were uncertain of her travel schedule.

We had informed the stakeholders, who were present for her initial arrival on Sunday.

We have received information that Palesa was attended to by doctors whilst in Pueto Rico recently, are you aware of this and what was this issue this time?

Would you say there is communication breakdown between the organisers and Miss Botswana herself?

Communication has been OK except for a few times when contestants were busy during rehearsals and other Miss World activities.

Who accompanied Miss Botswana to the world stage and what was their role?

When contestants arrive at Miss World,they are received by Miss World organizations at the airport and they go into bootcamp with no physical interactions to their country directors or family.

The Organisations, families and supporters attend the grand Finale show as guests and this is across all countries.

Miss World handles all logistics concerning their contestants.

What is next for Palesa now that she is back?

She continues her duties as Miss Botswana and continues to work on her project.
