AFTER Zimbabwe successfully hosted the inaugural Miss Curvy Africa beauty pageant, organisers of the event have moved the second edition to Windhoek, Namibia.
Mercy “Catwalk” Mushaninga, the brains behind the pageant, confirmed to NewsDay about the developments.
“Namibia will host this year’s second edition of Miss Curvy Africa slated for November 28 in the country’s capital city Windhoek,” Mushaninga said.
Mushaninga said preparations for the continental pageant were underway with everything going according to plan and was happy about the growth of the pageant.
“We are growing from one level to another in terms of ogarnising this event with 26 contestants across the continent contesting for the coveted title. The models will troop into the boot camp on November 22 ahead of the grand finale,” she said.
“Participating countries include Nigeria who is going to send two queens, South Africa four, Botswana two, Mozambique, Cameron, Zambia and Kenya are sending a model each with the host nation having four representatives.”
Mushaninga said Zimbabwe will be represented by five models among them 19 years-old Sheila Chikengezha from Harare who is the reigning Miss Curvy Zimbabwe 2014, second princess Chengetayi Mnisi and first princess Chantelle Jeradi.
The pageant, which celebrates and recognises curvaceous African women, will be held under the theme Models Against Hunger in Africa.
Mushaninga said fans should look forward to a bigger and better show in Namibia.
