By Own Correspondent- Nicole Musiyarira has been crowned Miss Africa University 2019 and automatically qualified for the Miss Tourism Manicaland finals which have been slated for July 2019.


Musiyarira’s beaming smile and striking exquisiteness did not only capture the eyes and hearts of the adjudicators but also scores of people who attended the glittering pageant at a local hotel last Saturday.

Miss Tourism Manicaland license holder Caroline Marufu Buwu, whose stock in the modeling industry rose after bringing the crown to Mutare last year when Tafadzwa Jaricha came out tops in the national finals said the pageant kick-started the journey to search of the new queen.

“Most of the contestants came from the educational institutions in and around Manicaland. This pageant presented an opportunity for me to see the calibre of models available this year. Yes, I definitely found few potential models,” she said.

Auditions for aspiring models between ages 18 and 24 will be held on 27 and 28 April 2019 and May 4 and 5, 2019 at the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority offices at Zimra Building.

The dress code will be black jeans, white tops and heels.

The provincial finals will be held on July 27 in Nyanga under the theme: “Zimbabwe at work”.

“This year’s edition of Miss Tourism Manicaland comes in the wake of Cyclone Idai which has seen families lose their loved ones and their homes. Businesses and tourist places in the province have been affected as well.

This event is a remembrance of the disaster, a time to celebrate with those that survived the ordeal as well as to thank those that gave selflessly to the affected families. It gives us an opportunity to highlight, rebuild and hopefully heal and revive the gem that Manicaland is,” she added.
