UP-COMING Tatenda Manungo, Stacey Hall, Sakhile Dube and Anelisiwe Ndebele have been chosen to represent Bulawayo province at the inaugural Miss Zimbabwe Queen pageant finals slated for 10 September at Rainbow Towers Hotel in Harare.
The pageant was founded by veteran beauty queens Tendai Hunda and Hilda Mabu.
Other models who were chosen to be part of the pageant include Charlotte Muziri (Chivi), Chip Pangolin Chigwende (Gweru), Elizabeth Gunda, Gina Mutemeri, Lyshanda Moyas and Tamia Tanatswa Chawaguta (all representing Harare).
As said before by the organisers of the event, five beauties would be crowned and chosen to represent Zimbabwe from 12 contestants.
Stacey Hall said: “It is a huge blessing to be contesting at the Miss Zimbabwe Queen pageant. I can barely contain my excitement. It is an honour and I am grateful for the opportunity to be representing the city of Kings.”
“The way I perceive myself is changing. I am embodying what it means to be a Queen. A lot of pruning is taking place and my confidence is rising. I believe I will make it to the top five,” said Hall.
Anelisiwe Ndebele, who is a triple major graduate from Rhodes University majoring in legal theory, politics, and industrial and economic sociology, said she was delighted to be representing Bulawayo.
“Being chosen to represent my city has made me take my physical appearance more seriously and my lifestyle has completely changed, hopefully I will come out tops at the pageant,” said Ndebele.
Entertainment at the catwalk will be provided by globetrotting artiste Jah Prayzah, Enzo Ishall, Trevor Dongo and John Cole.
Madam Boss and Tafadzwa Zimoyo will host the red-carpet affair.
