Charlyn Muleya was crowned Miss Tourism Beitbridge at a modelling contest held to search for the border town’s representative at the national finals to be held later this year.

While Beitbridge town is famous for being the home of money-changers, popularly known as ‘osphatheleni,’ it also has its fair share of beauties who can swagger on the rump and claim a crown, and such was the situation when the town blinked for a while and took a breather from its rand trade to be a part of the Miss Tourism pageant.

Muleya emerged the winner, while Roynah Kassim was the first princess and Miss Personality, with Belinda Moyo landing the second princess and Miss Talent.

Guest speaker and Miss Tourism Zimbabwe licence holder, Sarah Mpofu said it was refreshing to be part of the Beitbridge pageant that exhibited order of highest standards.

“When I came here, I did not know what to expect but you have demonstrated that there is order and talent in Beitbridge, so I say keep it up and continue to good us more such good staff,” Mpofu said.

To keep the crowd on its feet was Winky D who belted out good music, much to the appreciation of fans.

Such was the mood as the nimble footed took to the dance flow to be part of the event that was organised by Vanessa Mbedzi, the former Miss Tourism Beitbridge.
