Evelyn Njambi Finishes Among The Top Five Most Beautiful Women In The World

Call us psychics, but we at Zumi had already sort of predicted that reigning Miss Kenya Evelyn Njambi would come close to beating 2003 Miss Kenya Yolanda Masinde’s record.

Evelyn who replaced dethroned Roshanara Ibrahim rose up the ranks to be chosen among the top five finalists of Miss World 2016, making her the only African to be among the top 10. Taking the crown home was Puerto Rico’s Stephanie Del Valle, a 19-year old student of law, with Yaritza Miguelina Reyes Ramirez of the Dominican Republic, and Indonesia’s Natasha Mannuela being first and second runners up respectively.

Evelyn is a 23 year-old interior design student at Maseno University and hails from Kiambu County. Accepting her title the beauty queen says she could not have been more thrilled at getting that far.

“I am excited to be Miss World Kenya 2016; the journey ahead is tough with such a short time, but I appeal to the public to support me both towards my international competition and my Beauty with a Purpose project of advocating against Female Genital Mutilation in our beautiful country.” – She said in an interview.

Congratulations Everlyn Njambi, you have made us proud. Top 5 out of 100+ World beauty queens @MissWorld #EverlynIsTopFive #MissWorld2016
