BU­L­AWAYO’s Michelle Ne­shamba was at the week­end crowned Miss Bu­l­awayo-Harare, beat­ing 22 other mod­els at the in­au­gu­ral pageant held at Pri­vate Lounge.

Tendai Moyo was crowned first princess while Shar­lyne Ncube was crowned sec­ond princess. Miss Per­son­al­ity was Ni­cole Makuna.

Ne­shamba, who hails from Loben­gula West sub­urb, said: “It was a tough com­pe­ti­tion as the other mod­els were also as in­tel­li­gent and beau­ti­ful. There was noth­ing much sep­a­rat­ing us.”

For her reign, the beauty will iden­tify po­ten­tial mod­els in Bu­l­awayo and Harare for the Miss Zim­babwe-Zam­bia con­test to be held in Harare in De­cem­ber.

But be­fore that, Ne­shamba will next week start un­der­go­ing groom­ing lessons in Harare un­der the tute­lage of Size 4 Modelling Agency un­til Oc­to­ber.

Or­gan­iser of the con­test, Wil­bert Rukato, said the com­pe­ti­tion was very tough with judges find­ing it hard to se­lect a win­ner. “Nor­mally af­ter the mod­els go onto the ramp and get into the ques­tion and an­swer ses­sion, there’s a wide gap in terms of points. How­ever, with this con­test, some made it hard for judges to choose their top four which was good for the com­pe­ti­tion as it showed that only the crème had com­peted,” said Rukato.

He said Miss Bu­l­awayo-Harare will once again be hosted in Bu­l­awayo next year as well as the in­tro­duc­tion of pageants such as Miss Masvingo-Harare, Miss Kwekwe-Harare, Miss Maron­dera-Harare and Miss Chin­hoyi. — @bon­ganinkunzi
