Miss Tourism Zimbabwe (MTZ) pageant that was scheduled for the 14th of this month has been cancelled as seven of the 19 models who were in boot camp were involved in an accident last night in Vumba on their way to Eden Lodge where they were scheduled to sleep.
The sad development was confirmed by MTZ chairperson Sibusisiwe Dube who told the Herald that the models are now at Murambe Garden Hospital where they are being monitored. Dube said:
There are some injuries on some, but no deaths have been recorded as people are speculating.
They are stable as we speak. We believe they were affected including those who are not physically hurt.
Dube also revealed that the models were scheduled to proceed to Chimanimani to visit Cyclone Idai-affected areas but could not proceed due to bad weather.
Dube also said that a support team has been dispatched to Vumba to assist since the event has been cancelled.
