This is really sad! I remember I wrote an article urging young ladies not to send their complete nude photos to boyfriends. I'm not even sure it's even safe to send to husbands with the way the world is now. Pictures could be hacked or in-case of a divorce, it could get leaked.

Exactly a  year after her predecessor was dethroned over a similar scandal, Miss Zimbabwe 2015  Emily Kachote has  been  stripped off her crown over online photos that allegedly showed  her posing nude in scandalous positions.  Kachote 25, won the Miss Zimbabwe pageant on  April 26th, 2015 .
The photos were leaked by her ex and scorned lover.
Emily in an interview said “I was hoping the pictures would have been deleted by now since it happened a long time ago and I last spoke to the guy a year ago and I no longer have anything to do with [him] since what we had ended a long time ago,” Kachote was quoted as saying.

“I have always suspected that those pictures would circulate, but it happened a long time ago, and I believe my past does not determine where I am going.”

 She will be replaced by Annie Grace Mutambu who was the first runner up.

The Miss Zimbabwe World board released a statement confirming her dethronement 

“The Miss Zimbabwe executive board would like to inform the nation that it has resolved to dethrone Miss Emily Kachote as Miss World Zimbabwe 2015,” read a statement released Wednesday.

“Early this month one of the local tabloids carried a story, which alleged that Miss Emily Kachote’s nude photos had appeared on a WhatsApp group.

“This report came shortly after Miss Emily had confessed that she had once posed nude.

“This was in violation of the rules and regulations governing the Trust which all the contestants appended their signatures to.”

Among the rules of the competition, “winners of the Miss Word Zimbabwe beauty pageant, whether a title holder or a runner-up must not have posed nude professionally or socially in all forms of media.

In addition: “Being in a relationship, sexual advances towards anyone and any behaviour categorised as immoral by the Miss Zimbabwe Trust is grounds for instant disqualification and dethronement.”

In its statement Wednesday, the Miss Zimbabwe World Trust said: “It should be noted that during the scouting and the preceding boot camp all aspiring models appended their signatures to these regulations and undertook to abide by them.

“The confession by Miss Emily Kachote that she once posed nude and her admission of the existence of the photos led the Trust to dethrone her since her conduct was a precise violation of rules governing the Trust.

“The First Princess Miss Annie Grace Mutambu has since replaced Miss Emily Kachote. In its quest to have a probity queen the Trust will not hesitate to effect its rules and regulations governing it.”
