Zimbabwe has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to its beauty queens posing naked. For the second year in a row, the Miss Zimbabwe Trust has stripped the winner of the pageant of her crown over a nude photo scandal.

Emily Kachote, 25, was dethroned for "immoral behavior" after she admitted to posing nude for photos, which were leaked last month by her ex. The organization said in a statement Wednesday that she had violated an agreement in which contestants had to swear they have never posed naked, nor will they ever should they win.

"Being in a relationship, sexual advances to anyone and any behavior categorized as immoral by the Miss Zimbabwe Trust is grounds for instant disqualification and dethronement," the statement read, according to local news station News24.

Last year, Thabiso Phiri also lost had to give up her crown after nude photos of her surfaced.
