Here are memorable throwback photos during the finals of Miss Universe 1999 when Mpule Kwelagobe of Botswana reacted as she was named winner over our very own Miriam Quiambao (left) who finished 1st Runner-Up plus an small assortment of other images taken in Chaguaramas, Trinidad and Tobago last May 26 1999 by Getty Images.
As for her personal life long after winning the crown, Mpule married Indian-American financial consultant Abhijoy Gandhi in 2015, in four separate ceremonies held in Kanye Village, Botswana, New York City, and India. The two of them are considered one of Botswana’s popular power couples.
According to Mpule herself:
”The business we are into is divided into three categories namely: financing, agriculture and global energy. For us it’s not just about business but rather a legacy we want to leave behind. We share a common goal with hubby which is simple; youth empowerment.
