Jessie-Helda-Mathas

Pulchérie Nzé Nzoughé gave up the 69th edition of the beauty competition, “Miss World” that will be held on 14th December 2014 in Earls Court Exhibition Centre in London (United Kingdom). In a press conference on Monday, 10th November 2014, “Défis de femmes” (Women challenges) association, initiator of “Miss Gabon”, explained the withdrawal of the queen of Gabonese beauty by “professional interest reasons”, without further details.

Uncommon thing, Gabon will be represented at “Miss World” election by her third heir apparent; such was the decision from “Défis de femmes” association. Jessie Helda Lekery Mathas will thus represent Gabon during the international competition. This decision surprises the Gabonese because the name of their Miss, Pulchérie Nzé Nzoughé appeared among 99 candidates in the race for the world crown.

Jessie Helda Lekery Mathas is regular on podia. Professional model, the Miss from Haut Ogooué is 24 years old and 1 m 69 high. In the local press, her name arouses comments. “Most of them related to a supposed resignation of Pulchérie Nzé without confirmation from the committee; for some others, this decision would only be “justice done“. It is what could be read on Gabon Review site.
