Miss Tanzania 2016 Diana Edward finally got awarded yesterday. The beauty pageant was held in October last year and it was almost clear that the management had forgotten about it. Diana Edward who won the pageant beating other 29 contestants, received the award of a Toyota Swift.

Miss Edward who was Miss Kinondoni beat her main rivals Maria Peter (Miss Mwanza) who finished first-runners up and Grace Malikita (Miss Ilala) who finished second runners-up on the final day of the pageant which was on October 31st last year.

There was uproar from Tanzanian fans who urged her to return the car she had been given as the main prize of her win back in October last year. Miss Edward was awarded a Toyota Swift yesterday but Tanzanians on Twitter were having none of it. They used the Hashtag #MissTzRudishaGari to shame the organizers of the event.

Here are some of their reactions below:


Some even suggested that the next Miss Tanzania would receive skating shoes as an award!

We wish you all the best Miss Edwards.
