Public 'outing' for queens

Mere Naleba
Sunday, July 13, 2014

AN EMPTY Damodar City Food Court was quickly filled by a large crowd that had gathered to witness this year's Hibiscus contestants participate in a public performance and outreach activity yesterday.

Contestants were encouraged to mingle with members of the public and used the chance to speak on the theme of this year's festival "Climate Change — Affecting Human Lives".

Although many of the contestants had other issues to advocate for, every contestant took time to share their knowledge on the theme.

"The community outreach program was a success because the opportunity gave the 17 queens to speak on climate change and were also able to introduce themselves to the public," Hibiscus Events Group spokeswoman Lice Movono - Rova said.

"They performed a dance and spoke on the various aspects of climate change and how it was affecting us."
