Selma Kamanya gives Nadja Breytenbach advice

As her reign ends, Miss Namibia 2018 Selma Kamanya welcomes Nadja Bretenbach to her year with wise words.


Kamanya who spoke out against emotional and financial abuse by Miss Namibia organizers and eventually boycotted the Miss Namibia crowning which took place this weekend has congratulated her successor on social media.

On Monday she posted on Facebook and congratulated incoming Miss Namibia Nadja Breytenbach, and said the job requires of her to have ‘thick skin, patience, and resilience’.
Selma also expressed confidence in Breytenbach’s ability to carry the crown and to make Namibia proud.

“You embody ‘what can I bring to the title’ as opposed to ‘what can the title do for me’ and I am at ease knowing that. Thousands of girls look up to you from here on out, don’t forget that to them, you represent hope. You will be in Namibia’s history books forever, work hard and strive toward leaving your mark and never forget you represent a beautiful, multicultural and diverse nation,” she said.


Meanwhile, National Council Chairperson Margaret Mensah-Williams threw her weight behind Selma and said on Facebook “I support you fully Selma. No one should be bullied just because you used your freedom of speech to speak out. You are being victimized and that is simply not on. Monopoly in Miss Namibia should fall.”
