Zimbabwe will return to Miss Universe pageant after 22 years

After a 22-year absence, Zimbabwe, a landlocked country in southern Africa, is expected to return to the Miss Universe pageant in El Salvador later this year.

Previously held by the first ever Miss Universe Zimbabwe, Yvette D'Almeida Chakras, the Miss Universe license is now in the hands of Tendai Hunda, a former Miss World Zimbabwe and Miss Intercontinental 2015 fourth runner-up.

Joining her as chief of operations and managing director is Zimbabwean television personality and communications consultant, Rumbidzai Takawira.

Zimbabwe last joined Miss Universe in the year 2001 with Tsungai Muswerakuenda. Its highest placement was achieved in 2000 when Corinne Crewe finished in the Top 10 from a field of 79 competitors in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Miss Universe Zimbabwe will be officially launched next Saturday, June 10 at Tongfu restaurant in Harare. The special dinner event will celebrate Zimbabwe's return to the international stage.
