Africa-Press – Lesotho. As a way to appreciate and in celebration of King’s birthday, Rethabile Thaatha who was crowned Miss Lesotho 2018 presented a Holy Bible gift to His Majesty King Letsie III last week.
During the presentation of the Bible, Thaatha was accompanied by her colleagues in the beauty pageant association of Lesotho namely; Tebello Maine who is Miss Heritage 2018 and Palesa Moramang crown Miss University Africa Lesotho
His Majesty’s birthday was in July 17 and was this year celebrated in Butha-Buthe District. In an interview with Thaatha, she said offering His Majesty the Bible was a privilege and a way to show how important the King is to the Nation.
“I decided to give him the Bible gift because I believe the beginning of wisdom is fear of the Lord so the Bible will connect the Royal family with the Most High God.
“It is always my daily prayer that King Letsie be blessed like Solomon and be the Chief to all the orphans, widows and the needy,” she said.
She further pleaded with the public to sponsor her trip to the Republic of China in November where she will be competing for Miss World. She promised to make Basotho proud.
“The trip is going to be costly since the competition will be taking one month period, so for me to get things such as make-up, attire and food for the period I am going to spend there, I will need more money,” she said.
Thaatha believes spending time with the Royal family before her trip was indeed a blessing and their prayer would help her have a good trip as she will be representing Lesotho.
