Ms. Belize pageant director resigns, Rebecca Rath dethroned?

Posted: Sunday, May 28, 2017. 10:50 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The National Creative Director of the Ms. Belize pageant, Opal Enriquez, issued a four page release yesterday.

Enriquez states in the release that she is leaving to pursue her personal goals and that there will be no 2017 Ms. Belize pageant.

Enriquez says that since there will be no 2017 pageant for a new Ms. Belize, effective immediately, the official title of Ms. Belize 2017 and all affiliated duties as the reigning Ms. Belize will pass on to the runner up for 2016, Marcia Moody of San Ignacio.

In her statement, Enriquez says that Moody is to represent Belize at the 2017 Ms. International pageant.

Ms. Belize Universe, Rebecca Rath is left out of the picture.

While Moody’s supporters have been congratulating her on social media, some Belizeans have been ranting on the supposed “dethroning” of Rebecca Rath who represented Belize at the Miss Universe pageant in Manila, Philippines in January.

This announcement, however comes after Rath’s father, Tony had published a revealing “Rocky road to Ms. Universe” synopsis of events that occurred during Rebecca’s journey to the Miss Universe pageant. In it, Tony alleged that Enriquez sabotaged Rebecca’s chances at the pageant.

Opal, who finally commented publicly yesterday, has refuted all claims against her. The Rath’s are yet to comment on Enriquez’s announcement.

    Ms. Rath was crowned in September of 2016. Her title of Miss Belize Universe was for a one year period, after which she would have to turn in her crown, one way or another.. THis everyone understands ..

    I have read the press release where this opel girl has announced that Ms. Becca is stripped of her crown now.. 4 months before her one year crowning is up.. and have read no such reason for this.

    Since no reason was given, I find that this action by this opel person to be petty and vendictive. It is through her own actions that I find myself believing every single thing that Tony Rath had written has now been validated by these nasty vendictive actions.

    shame shame shame on this opel person.. disgusting vendictive actions. my 2 cents.

    Ms Rath represented Belize well and the country should be proud considering all the negativity that is spread around the world because of corruption. She had every right to expose the incompetence and chaos of the person in charge.
    I say to the cowards of the Queen of the Jewel Ltd and the National Institute of Culture and History are that decided this – come forward!
    I say to the followup Ms Moody – don’t be a part of the conspiracy and be used as a pawn.
    I say to the people of Belize including the younger generation of youth – get yourself educated, get involved and take your country back from those with their head in the sand.
    Belize will not progress until its rid of the small-minded inept idiots in positions they are not qualified for.
