CURVY MODEL BANNED FROM PAGEANT
A curvy model from Bulawayo is furious after she was banned from the Miss Curvy Zimbabwe pageant finals next month.
Teen model Ntando Khumalo was disqualified from the pageant because she took part in the Miss Curvy Nust which was not affiliated to the Miss Curvy Zimbabwe. Ntando was crowned second princess.
“I don’t know why I’m being punished for participating in a pageant that l didn’t organise. I just took part [in Miss Curvy Nust] because l wanted the title and the money obviously, but l didn’t know it would ruin my road to this big contest because we never signed any contract,” she told the Standard.
However, Miss Curvy Zimbabwe pageant founder and licence holder Mercy Mushaninga said :“She participated in another pageant despite the fact that we told her not to take part in that bogus modelling contest where she became second princess.
We discouraged her from taking part because we were also not in agreement with the way it was done because it was held in a club, and this differs with our values.”
