A beauty contest for the person to be Miss Malawi in Ireland has ended up being a joke on Malawian social media.
A cross section of Malawians posting on Facebook and observed by Malawi24 have indicated displeasure at the choice of the judges while some have laughed off the winning team.
Some Malawians who have commented on the winners have wondered the criteria that was used.
“Was this a beauty contest or what, who chose the three to be the winners?” a Malawian social media user wondered.
“If these are the winners then what about the losers?” another asked.
“Is this the best that Malawians in Ireland can give us, are there no beautiful girls there?” yet another asked.
However some people have also defended the choice.
One Malawian based in Ireland said that the three girls are not that bad looking but only the pictures got them wrongly.
Another Malawian said beauty contests have changed and these days people do not just focus on outside beauty.
