Miss NUST scoops awards at Miss World Tourism Zimbabwe

THE reigning Miss NUST, Onesimo Nkomo, has scooped two awards at the Miss World Tourism Zimbabwe.

The 21-year-old Business Management student was adjudged Second Princess and Miss Personality.

Onesimo began her modelling career in 2019, where she won Miss NUST. With many thinking it was beginner’s luck, she proved them wrong by winning more crowns this year.

Onesimo said she will use 20 percent of her price money to start a “girl’s business startup initiative” and a modelling club at NUST.

“I am happy I have had the chance to work with big brands as an ambassador. I want to help other aspiring models and to be a role model to the girl child,” she said.

Sakhile Dube (24) was crowned Miss Tourism Zimbabwe at the inaugural pageant held at The Venue in Avondale, Harare last week.  She beat 11 other contenders to win an automatic ticket to represent the country at the tourism international pageant to be held in China next month. She is also pursuing her psychology degree with Women’s University of Zimbabwe.

Dube pocketed US$500 and an array of prizes, courtesy of various sponsors. Dorothy Bhebhe was voted First Princess and recived US$300, while Onesimo took home US$200 for Second Princess and another US$100 for the Miss Personality crown.

The contest was held virtually, with only 100 people in attendance. It was however, beamed on NashTV social media pages. – Online.
