5 audition for Miss Kabwe

ORGANISERS are targeting 15 finalists but only five are aspiring for the Carsie Events so far.

CHAMBO NG’UNI, Kabwe
ALTHOUGH the organisers are targeting 15 finalists, only five aspiring contestants for the Carsie Events-organised Miss Kabwe beauty pageant turned-up for auditions that were held at Chew Pot in the Kabwe last Saturday.
The 15 contestants being targeted should either have completed their tertiary education or be in college and must be between the ages of 18 and 25 as well as at least 1.6 metres tall.
But Carsley Mpundu of Carsie Events says the doors are still open for more ladies who want to participate to audition.
The five models who turned up for the auditions last Saturday are all from Mulungushi University, and they were all bubbling with confidence saying they will go all the way in grabbing the ultimate crown.
The five are Comfort Nyirenda, 18, Bwalya Mumba, 20, Theresa Mishipi, 18, Tracy Mtonga, 18, and 21-year-old Xwelisali Lukumba.
Comfort, who is in her first-year studying medicine, says participating in the Miss Kabwe 2016 is a step in the right direction for her as it will give her exposure. She is confident of winning and helping in the fight against gender-based violence as an ambassador.
Theresa, a first year student pursuing a degree in commerce, says she is geared to take on other participants.
“I have always wanted to do something like this,” she says. “This is a platform for me to start my modelling career”.
The reigning Miss Kabwe is Natasha Chikuma, a 22-year-old fourth year student studying International Relations and Development Studies at Mulungushi University.
She was crowned during the contest that was held last October at the Zambia Air Force (ZAF) Mess in Kabwe.
Her schoolmate Siabeengo Mudenda, 21, a fourth year student studying for her a degree in Commerce and Economics, was the First Princess while Develia Daka, 21, of Kabwe Institute of Technology, was the Second Princess with Twiza Munjili, 19, settling for the Miss Personality title.
Meanwhile, Oxygen Arena, one of the sponsors for this year’s event, is expected to hold a pre-launch for the pageant within this same month.
Carsley says the coming on board of Oxygen Arena is a positive development because there was no pre-launch last year.
