Mutsa Mutare is Miss Global International Zim 2012

Mutsa Mutare, a stunning 22 year old Sales & Marketing Consultant from Harare, was last night crowned Miss Global International Zimbabwe at an event held in the Jacaranda Rooms at the five star Rainbow Towers Hotel in the capital.


Mutare came tops out of sixteen other contestants in the double-title pageant which also included Miss Heritage World, won by First Princess, Melisa Chaka. Second Princess was Cynthia Moyo, who got the crown of Miss Tiens. The Miss Personality crown went to Jaqueline Ngarande.

The new queen told Zimbo Jam that she has been entering beauty pageants for the last seven years, starting when she was in high school and then going on to Miss Harare 2010, where she says she made it to the top ten. “I am happy and excited to have won Miss Global International,” she said.

The pageant, advertised to start at 1830hrs, kicked off only after 2100hrs, and a number of irate guests left in a huff before the opening, angered by the tardiness. These included Big Brother Stargame housemate and sister to Maneta, Teclar Mazanhi along with former Miss Zimbabwe and Miss Malaika, Brita Masalethulini.

The guest of honour at the event though, Robert Mugabe Junior, more commonly known as Tino, waited patiently while he chatted happily with some of the other guests. A second special guest was Miss Lesotho 2010 and Miss Humanity International 2011, Karabelo Mokoalla.

Other guests included Miss Teen Zimbabwe 2012, Liseli Madiri, shoe queen Pokello Nare and Former Miss Universe Zimbabwe Lisa Morgan. Among the judges were former Miss Zimbabwe Vanessa Sibanda and GreenCard Medical Aid Society Head of Marketing & Public Relations, Busi Dube.

The hosts for the evening were Doc Vikela and DJ Naida. Main acts on the entertainment line-up were PrayerSoul, Mudiwa, Stunner, Leonard Mapfumo and Shastro.

The sound system was a big letdown for the event and microphones kept cutting off, while crackling spoilt the performances. This did not stop the crowd from dancing along though as Stunner, Shastro and others dropped a few well known tracks.

Miss Global International Zimbabwe will take part in the international pageant in Jamaica, to be held in September while Miss Heritage World will travel to Johannesburg where forty contestants from around the world will battle it out for the global crown.
