  1. DISCRIMINATION AGAINST
    1 MEN
    2 MARRIED PERSONS
    3 AGE
    4 PERSONS WITH CHILDREN
    5 PERSONS WITH CHARGES
    THIS IS A NATIONAL UNDERTAKING AND SHOULD NOT EXCLUDE ANYONE, WITH REFERENCE TO THE CONSTITUTION.
    THINGS LIKE THESE OUGHT TO BE CHALLENGED TO ENSURE DEMOCRACY DOES NOT DIE…..

    • 1. Are you saying men should also compete?
      2. These simple requirements is what they’ve been using for international pageants such as Miss Universe.
      3.Are you saying someone at age 50 should be able to represent the country in an international pageant?

  2. I totally agree with Rastaman!!! Because I’m finding it hard to grasp that if my child dies during child birth then I can’t enter this pageant because technically since they’re being so technical I bore a child! The age spectrum is too narrow!!!! What happen to the 27 and 30 year olds??? My country is my country. I should have chance to represent it no matter my age!
