BULAWAYO â€" Phelandaba-based Tshwane University student Nkanyeziyethu Malunga beat 16 contestants to claim the inaugural glamorous Miss Bulawayo Environment 2012 beauty pageant title at a colourful and well-attended ceremony held at Horizon Pub on Friday.

Twenty three-year-old Malunga was flanked by Marybeth Ushe (20) crowned the first princess and Thubelihle Ncube (22) as the second princess. Seventeen-year-old Atipa Busuman landed the Miss Personality title.

Initially, the competition was set to have 20 models fighting for the honours but unfortunately four of them failed to make it to the finals due to an alleged failure to complete an environmental project which was a prerequisite for the competition.

Standing in for deputy prime minister Thokozani Khupe, director in her office Adelis Sibuta was not only the guest of honour but crowned the inaugural winner Malunga much to a delight of revellers who had packed the venue.

"I don't even know what to say about this. I am just so delighted as this is the biggest achievement I have made in life. I am hoping that I will take this to greater heights in as far as preserving our environment is concerned," Malunga told the Daily News in a visibly ecstatic mood after being crowned queen.
