Miss World Zimbabwe cancelled


The Miss Zimbabwe Trust would like to inform its stakeholders and the generality of Zimbabweans that it’ll not be holding the 2016 edition of the Miss World Zimbabwe pageant. The decision was reached after the Trust did not get the sufficient number of ladies during the scouting process.”

However, the search was being conducted since eight months and thirteen aspirants were shortlisted too. But none could make it to the Miss Zimbabwe Trust grade. According to the trust, they has hoped to get at least 30 contestants.

The Trust’s spokesperson, Tendai Chirau said, “Of the 13 that we got, our scouting committee hinted that only two really made the grade so we realised it was going to be a waste of resources holding the pageant. At times you can’t waste money and hold an event just for the sake of holding it. You can’t crown a sub standard queen who’ll fail to impress at Miss World and waste money.”

The Trust even offered a whopping amount of $2000 to the person who could bring a winning model, but it seems all those efforts were fruitless.

Despite of the fact that the pageant has been cancelled this year, the Trust is still conducting auditions for models who will contest in the pageant next year.
