The handover ceremony was held at The Miss Universities Zimbabwe Trust head office in Borrowdale, Harare.

The 22-year-old University of Zimbabwe law student outclassed 22 other beauties from various universities across the country at a well-attended event at Ochi City in Harare two weeks.

The supermodel said she was overjoyed to receive the biggest prize ever in her modelling career.

“I am overwelmed. This is one of the greatest presents l have ever received,”she said.

“I have realised that l can do more when it comes to excelling to greater heights.”

Speaking at the event, pageant founder, ex-Police Commissioner Oliver Chibage said the new queen had the responsibility to fly the country’s flag high.

“The drive behind the beauty pageant was to stimulate the desire to take ownership of the whole country as the queen is going to raise the country’s flag high,” he said.

Jaricha took over the crown from Valerie Chingonzo, who commended the organisers for a job well done during the prize giving ceremony.

“Thank you very much for this empowering pageant for young women. It’s changing young women’s lives,” she said.
The pageant, which was held on October 20, saw Yolanda Manhenga of Midlands State University and Fadzai Mubata from Great Zimbabwe University crowned first and second princess respectively.

Olivia Samwanda from Women’s University in Africa and Angolan national Josefa da Rista from Africa University were crowned Miss Personality and Miss Talent respectively.

Jaricha did not receive the car on the night of the beauty show because it was yet to be cleared.

She received the prizes courtesy of sponsors that included Guardian Security, Kenako Music, Sela Fuel, Hala Lodges and Helen Cakes.

The organisers said they were now preparing for next year’s edition which the trust’s chairperson Cornelius Nyahunda said would be bigger and better.
