Miss Gweru set for next month

GWERU - Over 13 models have so far registered for the sixth edition of Miss Gweru pageant that will take place in the Midlands capital’s Cathedral Hall on August 2.

Dubbed “From Old to New”, the annual beauty contest will coincide with celebrations to mark 100 years of Gweru’s existance.  Image Modelling Agency, the organisers of Gweru’s most prestigious beauty contest, is optimistic that more girls will register in the next fortnight for the chance to take over from beautiful Mellisa Moyo as Miss Gweru.

“Preparations for the event are underway and we are confident that more girls will join the 13 who have come forward so far,” said Mavis Kloset, a representative of the organisers.

The Image Modelling Agency spokesperson, however, bemoaned the lack of support from the corporate sector.

“We are not getting the necessary support from companies but this has to do with the fact that most companies are going through a rough patch,” said Kloset.

Despite limited support from the corporate sector, Image Modelling Agency is still confident that it will host a pageant that is in keeping with Gweru’s centenary celebrations.

“We hope to parade quality models who meet international standards. We are calling upon interested girls who are at least 1,68 metres tall and who are between 17 and 25. It is important to note that the girls must be single and must have no children,” she said.

Kloset added that Image Modelling Agency has fought hard to maintain the pageant in Gweru for the past six years despite a serious lack of resources.

“We are determined to be better than other Zimbabwean provinces as far as developing world-class models is concerned,” she told the Daily News.

Several Midlands musicians have been lined up to provide entertainment at the pageant that has in the past been won by students from Midlands State University (MSU) and Gweru Polytechnic.
