LOIUSA Chingangu on Saturday won the Miss Heritage Zambia pageant held at ZAMCOM Lodge in Lusaka and earned the right to represent the country at the world finals to be held in Sandton, South Africa in November.
The former Miss Teen Zambia saw off competition from 12 other contestants to win the pageant which was attended by Miss Heritage World vice-president Ronald Tisauke who had travelled to South Africa.
Contestants had to compete in the introduction category, creativity, national colours and evening wear.
The First Princess title went to Liyah Phiri with Emily Limpic crowned the Second Princess and Tadija Phiri the Miss Personality.
The other contestants were Tabitha Katope, Theresa Chishala, Melody Chileshe, Musowe Munkombwe, Thengiwe Phiri, Adessy Banda, Lukaki Nyemba, Namakau Kayombo, Jessica Naluonde and Cecilia Kongwa.
The pageant, organised by model Naomi Banda’s Unathi, also saw Miss Heritage 2013 Ruth Musakabantu and Miss Heritage 2015 Tina Shanga in attendance.
Now the task for Louisa is to prepare for the world finals to be held on November 4 at the Sandton Convention Centre. Last year’s representative, Tina Shinga, won the Most Photogenic title during the pageant.
The Miss Heritage stands for advancing world heritage and was founded on the basis of having women from all around the world to have the opportunity to represent the most important feature of any country, which is national heritage.
It was founded by Tare Munzara in Zimbabwe in 2012 during a visit to the Victoria Falls.
The current Miss Heritage title holder is Odessa Mae Tadaya from the Philippines, who was crowned on December 2014 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
