The title of Miss World Kenya for the year 2022–23 was bestowed to Kenyan model Chantou Kwamboka on Saturday, December 10, 2022.

After winning, Kwamboka received grooming services valued at Sh250 000 and Sh500 000. She had previously placed first in the Miss World Kenya 2021 competition.

Immediately before Miss World Kenya Sharon Obara, she has assumed the throne. At the Two Rivers Mall in Nairobi, Miss World Kenya’s Gala was co-hosted by KTN’s Claudia Naisabwa and Kiss FM personality Oga Obinna.

Ababu Namwamba, the Cabinet Secretary for Youth Affairs, Sports, and the Arts, attended the gala for the 2022 Miss World Kenya.
17 women qualified for the Miss World Kenya 2022 finals this year.

Ms. Faith Wanjiku Kariuki and Ms. Wabaiya Kariuki were named as the first and second runners-up, respectively, at an event held at the Two Rivers Mall.

The first international pageant to be held each year was Miss World. The pageant was founded in 1951, and its slogan, “Beauty With A Purpose,” refers to its main message, which is a call to action that goes beyond outward beauty and explores how beauty can be a platform for change.
What effect contestants can have on the lives of people in their community is the pageant’s central theme. With the intention of finding the future generation’s role model, Mr. and Miss World Kenya strives to represent this in all of our efforts.

Over the years, Ashleys Kenya, owners of Ashleys Hair & Beauty Academy, has developed a reputation as a major force in the pageantry and beauty industries.
An impactful crown was beautifully celebrated during the 50th Miss World Kenya pageant. With the assistance of an experienced panel of judges that was made up of:
