kissKenyan beauty queens, Miss World Kenya – Nyamira County and Siaya County, have spoken up about the controversial photo that went viral last week.

The photo showed the two beauty queens posing next to inmates at the Lang’ata Women’s Prison, who Kenyans on social media believed were more beautiful than the visiting models.

According to the beauty queens, Kenyans ignored the bigger picture which was their noble cause at the Women’s prison. They were at the Prison to judge a beauty contest and the inmates they posed with were the winners.

They were speaking to Shaffie Weru and Kalekye Mumo on Kiss FM. They claimed that they were not bothered by the negative comments.

I believe I am beautiful, and you cannot find anyone like me. I am a county queen and immediately after the county Governor then you want to tell me I am ugly it doesn’t work like that,” Miss Siaya declared.
