Eight UK-based Zimbabwean girls were short-listed for the finale of Miss World Zimbabwe-UK, which is scheduled to take place on July 1 2017 at De Vere Grand Connaught in Holborn, London.
The eight who made it after a thorough auditioning, beating other 22 contestants are Tanaka Mulawo, Khetiwe Ncube, Amanda Nkomo, Nyaradzo Mawondo, Natasha Gweza, Karen Kawadza, Tafadzwa Mazanhanga and Laurah Simbi.
The prestigious pageant which is running under the theme “I am proud to be Zimbabwean” will also see businesswoman and philanthropist Olinda Chapel being one of the hosts of the show.
One of the organisers of the pageant Chiedza Ziyambe announced this latest development and said they were happy with the progress so far as things were going according to plan. “Yes, this is the final selection of girls who are vying for the coveted title of Miss World Zim-UK. We have done our selection process very well and we are not affected by the less number of girls. We had to hurriedly do the auditions ahead of the pageant because we got our license a bit late and we have to have the pageant prior to Miss World-Zim as our winners are expected to take part and register early,” she said.
