Air Tanzania Plane Seized in Canada Over Dispute From 1980s

  Air Tanzania Plane Seized in Canada Over Dispute From 1980s One of Air Tanzania’s new Bombardier aircraft has been impounded in Canada amid a land-compensation dispute dating back to the 1980s, according to the East African nation’s government. The decision by Canadian authorities to impound the Bombardier Q400 plane isn’t directly linked to Tanzania’s national carrier and is related to a dispute between the East African nation and a South African farmer who’s seeking compensation for land he says was taken off him 40 years ago, Foreign Affairs Minister Palamagamba Kabudi said. The seizure is the second time an Air Tanzania aircraft has been impounded over the issue.

Miss South Africa has snagged the crown this year for Miss Universe.

Zozibini Tunzi won the 2019 Miss Universe pageant on Sunday night, beating out nearly 90 other women from various countries and territories in the annual competition.

Tunzi, 26, is a public relations professional and activist whose platform is largely based on her fight against gender-based violence, according to her contestant biography.

“She has devoted her social media campaign to changing the narrative around gender stereotypes,” her bio reads. “She is a proud advocate for natural beauty and encourages women to love themselves the way they are.”

  Tecumseh native Miss Universe Canada to champion pot at world competition Beauty pageants and pot promotion will share the same glamorous spotlight this December when Tecumseh native Alyssa Boston represents the country as Miss Universe Canada with a pro cannabis twist. The 24-year-old beauty queen told the Star she plans to make the case for global marijuana legalization during the Miss Universe competition Dec. 8 in Atlanta, Ga. Her approach to that pot pitch is still a secret, but she admitted television viewers would be seeing green during her time on stage. “It’s a little different for a beauty queen to talk about cannabis,” Boston said. “It’s something that we’re very proud of here in Canada.

Tunzi edged out her runner-up, Miss Puerto Rico Madison Anderson, as well as Miss Mexico Sofía Aragón, who came in third place.

“I’m so ecstatic,” Tunzi told reporters after her victory.

As she did on the stage Sunday night, she also spoke candidly about the importance of diversity and how her own life had been shaped by racial attitudes.

“Society has been programmed for a very long time that never saw beauty in a way that was black girl magic, but now we are slowing moving to a time where women like myself can finally find a place in society, can finally know they’re beautiful.”

Tunzi said she was bringing “a new, fresh and different perspective of what South Africa is.” And she said she hoped to lift other voices up as well — so that, as a chorus, they could be heard.

This year’s Miss Universe pageant, which aired live from Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, featured an impressive roster of women from a variety of different backgrounds, including the history-making Miss Myanmar, Swe Zin Htet.

Htet, 21, is the pageant’s first openly gay contestant, and only just came out as a lesbian days ago, something she recently told PEOPLE she timed to coincide with her moment in the spotlight.

“I have that platform that, if I say that I’m a lesbian, it will have a big impact on the LGBTQ community back in Burma,” she said through a translator, as homosexuality remains a crime in her country.

“It’s like I just started a new chapter in life,” she said.

Another notable new face was Miss Ireland Fionnghuala O’Reilly, who works as a NASA Datanaut and who has used her platform to advocate for young girls in STEM fields.

“I didn’t think I’d be able to bring my two passions together,” she recently told PEOPLE of her interests in both pageantry and engineering. “But the world is so different now. You can be a Renaissance woman and you can have multiple passions.”
