Thailand Bound Mini Miss Botswana Seeks Sponsors


The reigning mini Miss Botswana, Katlego Emily Mpudi who is scheduled to represent the country at the 2nd edition of Junior World Idols set for Thailand in January 2023 has appealed for sponsors to support her trip.

The pageant is the new generation of kids’ pageant that aims to supporting, inspiring and empowering children to follow their passion with good attitude, personality and talent.

She needs sponsors to cover her wardrobe, hairstyle and 5 nights’ accommodation from the 4th to the 9th of January 2023. Her wardrobe includes a swim wear, national costume, talent attire, evening gown, three pairs of shoes and the interview attire.

Mpudi’s Personal Manager Botlhale Menyatso told The Weekender that the journey to Thailand seems uneasy as they currently have no sponsors on board for the trip.

In an effort to solicit sponsors, Menyatso and Mpudi’s family has since collaborated and decided to assist her in hosting a beauty contest for Primary School girls scheduled for Maun Senior Secondary School on the 3rd of December.

The initiative he explained will give the model exposure to potential sponsors through the pageant that is in line with her beauty with a purpose project.

He said that the beauty contest will be unleashing talent in primary scholars. There’s currently a ‘tikela mo letloleng’ campaign where anyone interested can deposit any amount unlimited to assist in the preparations.

He further pleaded with travel agents to come on board and assist Mpudi with travel tickets and visas since government has not responded positively to their request.

8-year-old Mpudi who was born and bred in Maun was crowned Mini Miss Junior Idol world Botswana on the 6th of November.

Mpudi told The Weekender that she joined pageantry competitions when she was only 5 years old and has over the years won the Royal International Miss Botswana and The Gem Africa Botswana.

The young model said she is highly inspired by the current Miss Botswana, Lesego Chombo as she represented Maun and like herself very well. She added that Chombo is very inspiring because she is multi-talented. In future, Mpudi said she wants to be a super model and a modeling coach to help other girls in modeling work hard and nature their talents.

Mpudi trains every Saturday at Glory Modeling Academy to ensure that all her routines are perfect. She also has poetry coach (Ponatshego Katlholo) who helps perfect her poetic skills, and also recently started traditional and ballroom dance lessons.
