Grace Ingabire was crowned Miss Rwanda 2021 in a glittering finale held March 20 at the Intare Conference Arena but with no audience allowed due to the pandemic.

The 25-year-old beauty representing the City of Kigali succeeded last year’s winner Naomie Nishimwe.

Ingabire, who graduated with a degree in dance at Bates College in the USA, is expected to compete at the 71st Miss World contest next year.

Hope Akaliza and Witness Umutoni placed first and second runners-up, respectively.

Rwanda has yet to win the Miss World crown. The country currently ranks 150th in Missosology Big 5 Ranking. Missosology.Org
