Miss Botswana 2024 is Anicia Gaothusi from Tutume

Anicia Gaothusi was crowned Miss Botswana 2024 (Miss World Botswana 2024) in a glittering ceremony held on Saturday, March 23 at the Royal Aria Conference Centre in Tlokweng, Gaborone.

The 22-year-old student at the Gaborone University College of Law and Professional Studies (GUC) beat nine other finalists to win the national title. She is now expected to represent Botswana at the 72nd Miss World competition.

Halle Chandapiwa Hirschfeld and Sebaga Lea Manyapetsa were named the first and second princesses, respectively.

Completing the Top 10 contestants were Charmaine Keletso Reasentse, Emma-Anne Tshisimogo, Lefika Arhea Tladi, Lorato Kganyapelo, Otshepo Omphile Nthonyana, Relebanye Bakane and Christina Karin Vanstaden.

The new Miss Botswana is no stranger to pageantry. She previously held the title Miss Teen Botswana 2019 and participated in Miss Teen International 2019 in Gurugram, India where she finished as second runner-up.

Her predecessor, Lesego Chombo (Miss Botswana 2022), placed in the Top 4 and received the title Miss World Africa during the recently held 71st Miss World in Mumbai, India.
