The First Ever Miss Burundi was Crowned

The very first Miss Burundi 2008 Beauty Pageant was held at the Novotel. And it was Alida Kaneza who bagged the coveted crown. She received a brand new sofa set from GTS and a make-over paint job for her parent's home by Groupe Ladak. She also got a new wardrobe and a monthly salary for the duration of her reign.

Close to the title was the 1st run-up Evelyn Nkurunziza, while Panafrica Marie Claire is the 2nd run-up. A special award for Miss Congeniality was awarded to Ornella Muhimpundu.

It is still undecided if Burundi will participate at the Miss World 2009 Contest in South Africa.
