Miss Zimbabwe winners, queen Ashley Morgen and her two princesses, Nonhlanhla Dube (Miss Agro-Tourism) and Shirley-Ann Lindsay (Miss City Tourism) will most likely be given their prizes on January 6, 2017. This date is the third postponement in as many weeks as the MTZ Trust has not been able to fulfil its obligation.
Morgen is expected to receive $20 000 and a car as well as $2 500 for being crowned Miss People’s Choice. Dube is set to get $10 000 while Lindsay will get $5 000. The other five contestants who made the top eight will likely be invited to the prize giving ceremony as they were promised $1 000 each as well as a year’s tuition at any college they are attending.
MTZ Trust spokesperson, Alson Darikayi said they have been postponing the prize giving ceremony to focus on the queen’s Miss Tourism International preparations with Ashley Morgen returning from Malaysia at the beginning of January next year.
