Karura Forest was once again the host of an international celebrity when the reigning universal beauty queen, Miss World 2011 Alexandria Mills from the USA visited the forest as one of the stops in her four day tour of the country.
Miss World was in Karura to meet with the children of the Huruma Slums who live adjacent to the forest. She was invited by the Friends of Karura Community Forest Association (CFA) to see the mutually initiated developments between the CFA, KFS and other stakeholders which include an electric fence surrounding the over 1 000 ha forest.
Ms Mills interacted with the children of Huruma who were visibly overjoyed to meet one of the most beautiful women in the world. Accompanied by other beauties including our very own Miss World Kenya Natasha Metto, the 2010 winner of the Miss World Kenya Fiona Konchellah and Miss Forest Queen Martha Mukami. Ms Mills talked to the children before leading a brief tree planting ceremony by the beauties.
Miss World was accompanied by Miss World Venezuela who is also the Miss World runners up Adriana Vasini and Miss World Africa who is also Miss Word Botswana Emma Wareus.
