Hindi ako mangkukulam! Megan Young addresses Botswanian netizens after touching the hair of Miss Botswana

Filipina beauty queen Megan Young addressed the netizens in Botswana after she was accused of witchcraft during the question and answer portion of Miss World 2024.

It can be recalled that some Botswanians interpreted Megan’s gesture toward Miss World  Botswana Lesego Chombo as witchcraft to remove her confidence during the portion.


Some of them also reminded Megan that touching someone’s hair was not really a good gesture towards black people.

In a statement, Megan recognized the criticism thrown against her and shared that she apologized privately to Lesego for what she did.

“Last night during the final, I fixed Lesego Chombo’s (Miss Botswana) hair on stage. I wanted to offer a helping hand but I failed to oversee the bigger picture. This could have caused distress during that moment and I have been made aware that culturally, this is unacceptable,” she said.


“We have spoken privately last night at the hotel and I have apologized to Lesego in private. To those who witnessed the incident, I also want to apologize for any discomfort or confusion my actions may have caused. It was a thoughtless and disrespectful act, and I take full responsibility for it.

“I assure you that it was not my intention to invade personal space or make anyone feel uncomfortable. I deeply regret my actions and will strive to be more mindful and respectful in the future,” she added.

Meanwhile, Lesego already urged her fans on social media to stop criticizing Megan.


It can be recalled that people in Botswana still believed in witchcraft.
