The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) has unveiled South Africa-based Zimbabwean businessman, Justice Maphosa, as sponsor of the 2016 edition of Miss Tourism Zimbabwe scheduled for November 25 at the Harare International Conference.
Maphosa, through his Big Time Strategic Group and SA Zim Business Connection, was unveiled as the main sponsor at a colourful ceremony held at Pablo’z club in Borrowdale. Speaking at the ceremony the matron of Miss Tourism Zimbabwe Barbra Mzembi said,
It’s sad to note that the pageantry industry in the country has been quite damaged that corporates no longer believe in it. I struggled to make some believe in it. I wanted to lead by example and show everyone that pageantry can be of honour, good in marketing (strategies) and could be very useful for the girl child. am grateful that we got a sponsor who is not based in Zimbabwe but was born in Zimbabwe.
She also revealed that the pageant’s two princesses will be named Miss Agro-Tourism and Miss City Tourism.
