Miss World Zimbabwe beauty pageants are now in boot camp for the Miss World Zimbabwe to be held on the 8th of next month in Domboshava.

22 girls are now in camp and five are still on their way from South Africa.

Some of the girls who have joined the boot camp are optimistic will make it to the final despite the fact that some are going to be dropped every week.

Speaking during a media briefing in the capital, Miss World Zimbabwe spokesperson, Tendai Chirau, said 28 girls were chosen from 95 who turned up for auditions.

The pageants are going to be staying at a local hotel.

Running under the theme, “Embracing Women as a Symbol of Beauty”, only 16 girls are going to make it to the finals.
