BLANTYRE (Malawi NewsNow)- Miss Blantyre Beauty Pageant is back and the event will take place in October this year, organizing chairperson Daniel Ngwira has said t all preparations are going smoothly to come forth with a stunning formula that should take standards of modeling in Malawi to a different level.
Ngwira said the management has partnered with various business stakeholders including the City Council and the Mayor of Blantyre Noel Chalamanda to hold series of pre-event build up activities in Blantyre and a strategic sustainable campaign that should promote the girl child as a productive citizen.
He said this year’s Miss Blantyre beauty pageant will be held under the theme ‘Beyond beauty’ which aims to produce role models in the society rather than just models.
“The theme revolves around going outside the box of beauty to explore models that have extracurricular skills, talent and merits that can be worth modeling after. Stereotypes which models have suffered as being unfairly adjudged by society and thinks this year’s feat will try mending the reputation,” said Ngwira.
He therefore appealed to all current and aspiring models to strive for a difference in their lives if they are to become role models and productive citizens.
The last Miss Blantyre was conducted in December 2013 whose main sponsor was United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA). Polytechnic student Nerani Nthara emerged winner with Yalenga Vinkhumbo (Chancellor College first year) and Samantha Williams being first and second princesses respectively.
The auditions for the event will be held early August.
