  115. Lucille Ledwaba says:

    1st it's the weight now its height. Iv got a great personality, smart and can make a good role model and representative for africa, i'v got a great slim body but i'm just close to 1.7 tall. For such a big event don't u think it would be best to look for someone mature, besides the height and weight? What's wrong with a lady below 1.7m with the perfect body and intelligence representing africa? This is too hollywood and unfair. This is africa and i'm proud of it,but sad to see not-so-mature ladies being considered coz they're tall. Unfair!! Thank u.
