Liliane Iradukunda has replaced Elsa Iradukunda as Miss Rwanda 2018​.

Liliane Iradukunda beat stiff competition from the 20 girls who spent 14 days in boot camp at Golden Tulip La Palisse Hotel in Nyamata​,​ but mainly Shannitah Umunyana and Natacha Ursule Irebe who were crowned first and second runner​-​up respectively.

Iradukunda, 18, who represented Western Province weighs 57kg, and ​is ​1.70 meters tall. Rwanda Inspiration Backup are the organisers of the annual beauty pagean.

Iradukunda took home a brand new Suzuki Baleno courtesy of Rwanda Motors​,​ and will earn a monthly salary of Rwf800,000 ​in the next year, ​courtesy of Cogebanque.

She also ​received additional prizes that include air tickets to international beauty contests from RwandAir, ​and cosmetics ​among other goodies from different sponsors.

​Unlike previous Miss Rwanda editions, contestants ​also had an oral test that was moderated by Sonia Rolland, Miss France 2000​,​ and other judges. Results from both written and oral pre-judgement were key in determining the contestants who made it to the top 10. The results were announced during​ the​ grand finale​.

T​hose that made it into the top 10 were: Liliane Uwase Ndahiro, Liliane Iradukunda, Noriella Ishimwe, Shanittah Umunyana, Natacha Ursule Irebe, Lydia Dushimimana , Karen Umuhoza, Paola Umutoniwase, Phiona Uwase and Divine Ingabire

How the girls ​fared in boot camp also increased their chances of succeeding ​the​then-reigning Miss Rwanda​ 2017​.

The jury was comprised of two men and three ladies. They included, Sonia Rolland, a Rwandan-French actress and Miss France 2000; former Miss Universe contestant​ and Miss Rwanda 2016​, Jolly Mutesi​ – ​the first beauty queen to represent Rwanda at Miss World finals​ – ​and Sandrine Isheja Butera, a radio presenter and leading ​Rwandan ​media personalities
