MISS Zimbabwe Tourism national finals that had been slated for Montclair Hotel and Casino in Juliasdale, Nyanga on December 14 have been called off following the finalists’ accident in Vumba Wednesday.

Nine of the finalists were injured in the accident and are admitted at Murambi Gardens Clinic in Mutare.

While the organisers said they were all in high spirits they were however all still in shock after cheating death by a whisker.

The organisers, in a press statement Thursday morning, said the date and venue of the rescheduled beauty pageant will be communicated in due course.

“The Finals which set were set for this Saturday have been postponed to a date and venue to be advised,” they said.

The pageants were touring the Eastern Highlands as part of their boot camp experiences in preparation for the finals.

They had been scheduled to also visit Chimanimani but the trip was abandoned due to adverse weather conditions, the organisers said.
