The biggest beauty pageant in the continent, Miss Africa is now heading to Zimbabwe. Miss Africa Zimbabwe, scheduled for April 29 this year under the auspices of Fingers Modelling Academy in Bulawayo, will be held along 10th Avenue, between Fife and Jason Moyo Streets, in the country’s second largest city.
The pageant will run under the theme: Rebranding and uniting Africa. A total of 16 beauties from Bulawayo, Victoria Falls, Karoi, Kadoma, Harare, BeitBridge and Bindura will catwalk for honours on the ramp. The winner on the night will represent Zimbabwe at the Grand African finale at the end of the year.
Spearheaded by our very own Lentswe la Monana here in Botswana, the beauty pageant will provide a platform for youth advocacy and engagement, which will be made up of collective youth in Africa and other stakeholders. Botswana has already crowned its Queen Peelo Mookodi, who will be representing the country.
