Miss Africa could not celebrate her victory properly
The beauty pageant was being held in Nigeria. The winners of all African countries were participating in the contest for selecting Miss Africa. On the last day of the contest, the much-awaited result was declared. Miss Congo, Dorcas Kasinde, won the prestigious title of Miss Africa. Celebration started.
But Miss Kasinde could not fully enjoy her moment of glory. The fireworks which followed the announcement of the winner, was the culprit. The just-crowned Miss Africa's hair was set aflame. But very fortunately, before a major incident, the fire was quickly put out. There has been no damage to Miss Kasinde. This happened on 28th December, 2018.
This is perhaps the first time such mishap happened in the beauty pageant anywhere in the world. I hope in future the organizers of such event will take necessary precautions learning from this incident.
