Miss Carnival title falls vacant

HARARE - The Miss Carnival title reportedly fell vacant in December last year after the incumbent Chengetai Kanonhuwa (20) left the country after enrolling with a university in  South Africa.

A well-placed source, who declined to be named, said Kanonhuwa’s reign was supposed to continue until the crowning of a new queen but her sudden relocation to South Africa left the organisers  —  the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) — in a limbo.

ZTA head of corporate affairs Sugar Chagonda could not immediately confirm the development yesterday.

“I was on leave so I need my team to brief me on the goings-on. I will get back to you,” he said.

Kanonhuwa was made the face of Zimbabwe’s tourism body in line with an agreement between the Miss Zimbabwe Trust and ZTA that specifies that first princess at Miss Zimbabwe will automatically become Miss Carnival

Miss Zimbabwe Trust’s programmes and communications manager Tendai Chirau said the national pageant was happy with the partnership with ZTA.

“There was a proposition from ZTA last year to have our first princess be crowned as the Carnival Queen even though there was no formal request. I am not sure how they are handling things there but it is something that we worked with them on last year.

“One of our princesses’ mandates is to promote destination Zimbabwe. So we will see again this year how we will go about it but there was no formal agreement with ZTA,” he said.

Last year, Kanonhuwa represented Zimbabwe at the Miss Tourism International held in Malaysia on New Year’s Eve.

At the event that was created by the president and franchise owner Tan Sri Datuk Danny to promote tourism, the 20-year-old beauty battled it out with 70 other beauties from around the world.
