Miss Rwanda 2012 Aurore Kayibanda Umutesi
20 year old Aurore Kayibanda Umutesi from Nyanza was crowned as the new Miss Rwanda 2012 during a beauty contest held at the Gikondo Expo Grounds in Kigali last September 1.

Finished as the 1st run-up was Natacha Uwamahoro, while Ariane Murerwa ended as the 2dn run-up position.

For the first time in history, Rwanda will send a representative to compete in the next edition of the Miss World pageant. Aurore will travel to Jakarta, Indonesia on July 2013 to enter the said competition.

A Rwandan delegate to Miss World would serve as an eye opener show­ing that this sovereign state in central and eastern African country has moved on and continue to progress and improve the country’s image internationally.

So far, only Agbani Darego from Nigeria has won the Miss World crown. The winning of Leila Lopes of Angola as Miss Universe 2011 also made a huge impact why more and more African countries now participating in an international beauty pageants.

As for Umutesi, she will have the big responsibility to be a good example and role model specially African girls as she competes at Miss World 2013. Goodluck!
