Both Nelly and Sandra were in Angelopedia’s Miss Tanzania 2018 Top 6 Hot Picks.

Tanzania is yet to bring home the crown of Miss World. The closest the nation has come to winning the crown was in the year 2005 when Miss World Tanzania 2005 Nancy Sumari was placed in the Top 6 at Miss World 2005.

We wish Elizabeth all the very best for her delegacy as Tanzania’s representative at Miss World 2018.
