Miss Heritage set for next month

HARARE - Miss Heritage Zimbabwe will take place on October 8 at KuHuku Shopping Centre in Hillside, Harare.

The pageant will be organised by Ke Nako Media who recently acquired the exclusive rights to hold the event in Zimbabwe.

Six titles, which include Queen, First and Second Princess, Miss Personality, Miss Culture and The People’s Choice will be voted for and are up for grabs.

Ke Nako media liaison officer Tinopona Katsande told the Daily News that they were overwhelmed by the response they got at auditions they held over the past two weeks.

“When we called for the first auditions the response was so overwhelming that we decided to call for other auditions which were also good. I think we will have a tough time trimming them down to the required 15.

“The calibre of the Zimbabwean girl is very high. We are making sure that Miss Heritage does not disappoint the contestants and the people,” said Katsande.

In an apparent reference to Miss Zimbabwe which called off its 2016 edition after failing to find suitable contestants, the multi-talented arts personality insisted that Zimbabwe is awash with beautiful girls.

“I think it’s unfair for pageants to say that they cancelled because they cannot find beautiful girls.

“It is our mandate as organisers to make the pageant attractive enough to have people coming through,” she said.

Katsande is happy with the manner the pageant preparations are unfolding.

“We will hold a two-day boot camp in Harare soon. The pageant will be held in the car park and we will put up a world-class stage there like what happens at other events,” she said.

Miss Heritage was founded in Zimbabwe by Tare Munzara in 2012.

He later quit the pageant after disagreements with his South African partners.

Miss Heritage is now being run in South Africa by Munzara’s partner, Ronald Tisauke and his partners based in that country.
