    Harare – Auditions for this year’s Miss Heritage Universe scheduled in Kampala, Uganda, on July 28 are underway with organisers expecting up to 80 contestants from across Africa.   

    The main event is slated for July 28 but the models will be in boot camp beginning from July 12 at the Pearl of Africa Hotel.

    The Miss Heritage Universe, which has been endorsed by the Ugandan Tourism Ministry in conjunction with Crystal Models, who organise the Miss Tourism Uganda contest confirmed auditions were now underway.

    Ronald Tisauke, a South Africa-based Zimbabwean and former model who is a spokesperson for Miss Heritage Universe, told The Southern Times that stakes were high for this year’s contest.

    “It is my pleasure to announce that Miss Heritage Universe will be happening for the first time in Uganda this July from 12 to 29. The main event will be held on the 28th.

    “We are looking for people to represent the proud heritage of their nations, for more information please email, apply@missheritageuniverse.com , or visit our official Facebook pages https://www.facebook.com/missheritageuni/,” Tisauke said.

    He continued: “We are looking forward to a minimum of 50, our target, however, is 80 this year. The Ugandan tourism ministry expressed interest in our brand and they are hosting the pageant through Crystal Models of Uganda, the same organisation that does Miss Tourism Uganda,” Tisauke said.

    He said there are fabulous prizes up for grabs including US$10,000 cash.

    “We don’t have the resources equaling other global beauty pageants in terms of prizes but it doesn’t bother participating countries.

    “Most participants are more interested in coming to Africa than the prizes and of course our fellow African nations are interested in marketing their nations as much as possible, Tisauke said.

    Tisuake was born in Mutoko and used to model in 1999 alongside Zimbabwean top models of the likes of Jerome Galio and Melgin Tafirenyika, to mention a few.

    He also ran a modelling agency called Afrique Models from 2001, which later closed down in 2013 before he joined renowned female models Priscilla Chigariro, founder of Zimbabwe Fashion Week and television personality and former reality starlet Vimbai Mutinhiri.
