The 28-year-old beauty queen, who left Malawi aged two and is currently studying at the University of Pretoria, was  crowned  at an event organized by Malawians and Friends in South Africa (MAFSA).

“I am extremely happy about the win. It’s a platform for me to share Malawi to others,” she told Nyasa Times in an interview on Friday night.

Miss Malawi SA is geared to use beauty and the wits to make her tenure a success and “promote Malawi as a tourist attraction.”

She told Nyasa Times that she is currently studying for a masters degree  in Environmental Management at the University of Pretoria.

“I also have a BSc in Environmental sciences from the University of Swaziland. I later went to get an honours in Environmental Analysis and Management from the University of Pretoria. After that I was awarded a scholarship by Canon Collins Trust to do my MSc in environmental Management. I’m currently in my final year,” she stated/

According to Miss Malawi SA, she left Malawi when she was two years old to Belgium where her  dad was studying for his PhD.

“Then we lived back in Malawi briefly for about two years. Then we went to Ethiopia where he was doing research. In 1997 we moved to Swaziland where he was lecturing at the University. I have also stayed in Kenya.”

Mwendera once contested at the University of Swaziland Miss Inter-Colleges and won the title.

The father’s services are missed Bunda College. He went on sabbatical leave and never returned. Not patriotic to his mother land. Children raised away from their nation. Please Mwendera, enough you have had in diaspora, return and help your nation. So should be the case with others in diaspora, God made you a Malawian for a purpose for this country. And the government at that time spent a lot to train you. Have remorse and return, render service in any way.
