One year after contestants participated in the Miss Antigua & Barbuda Pageant they have not been paid the monies owed to them.
One contestant who went public with her disappointment Rohanna Smith says since her recent Facebook post no word has been forthcoming from the Festivals Commission.
She said on social media that their silence over the last year does not mean the girls are satisfied with the non-payment.
Smith said the former contestants have been rallying privately for their monies to be paid but that has not worked.
“With everything I’ve been through entering Miss Antigua Barbuda, having it dragged on for this long is crazy!” Smith wrote.
She said it is no defence that others have been waiting much longer than her “because quite frankly those people are quite comfortable.”
Preparations are in high gear for another Miss Antigua Barbuda Pageant next month.
The festivals commission says it owes over 7 million dollars to past carnival service providers.
