Organisers of the Miss Malaika beauty pageant have categorically denied suggestions that success in the pageant is guaranteed only to those who are willing to offer sexual favors.
This follows the arrest of a young man for allegedly attempting to defraud a prospective contestant.
The suspect, Godfred Amankwah-in a taped conversation- promised a prospective contestant in the pageant that he could guarantee her a place in the final if she would have sex with him.
But the Head of Public Relations at Charterhouse, Juno Turkson says the claims by Godfred are absolutely false.
She told host of Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah that it only takes beauty and intelligence to participate in the contest.
“I can say for a fact that when it comes to Miss Malaika Pageant, no lady has had to give anything, but what they already had in them, that is their talent and their intelligence and their beauty; that is all you require to be in Miss Malaika.”
