The medical student from the university bagged the top prize ahead of 11 others who were vying for the same title. The first princess was Ronica Dewa. Tembela Ndlovu became the second princess while the Miss Personality crown was awarded to Hazel Dzapata. According to Kimberly Kujinga, one of the event organisers, all the winnerswould represent UZ at other pageants.

“The winners automatically qualify to compete in the Miss Universities Zimbabwe competition on top of their award prizes. The first princess qualified to represent UZ at Miss Parade being organised by The Parade Magazine,” she said.

The Queen, Nancy, received a cash prize donated by Superpies, a cellphone from G-Tel, a year’s supply of cosmetics from Black Opal, a dinner voucher and a skin care hamper.

The event was also graced by urban grooves artistes Trevor Dongo and Desmond Chideme aka Stunner.

It was also graced by model scouts who selected some of the contestants to participate in a modelling pageant in Spain as well as Sadc Fashion Week. Top chanter Soul Jah Love gave a polished act at the after party while the Mbare chanter Seh Calaz sang a few lines of the songs “Mumota Murikubvira”, “Ushamwari Hwenyu” and “Shanda” with fans singing along.

The UZ artistes like Tinashe Makura, Tapiwa “Icy” Chinanikire and Iton “Scatter” Jena did not disappoint as well. The event organisers have expressed gratitude about the success of the event. “We are happy that our event was a success and would like to thank all those who made this event possible. We hope to do better things next year,”said Kujinga.

The Miss University of Zimbabwe beauty pageant continues to grow and has made positive progress in improving the quality of models. The pageant was organised by the Rotaract Club UZ.
