Mmangisa, Event Management student at University of Coventry and also one of the DJs at Malawi’s UK online radio 247, proved a popular winner on the night after a panel of four judges picked her as winner ahead of other five finalists.

The judges were Zimbabwean fashion designer Tyra Audrie , Malawian lecture Charles Kachitsa,  fashionesta Bertha Masangwi and Mrs Chijota.

“It was critical task to judge and select the ultimate winner as it was a tight contest with all contestants putting up a good show,” one of the judges Masangwi said in an interview.

Crowned First Princess was Tadu Nyasulu, second princes Angel Kendricks and Miss Personality was Tamanda Kandonje.

“I am so, so happy. It’s a wonderful feeling and it’s inexpressible,” Mmangisa told Nyasa Times in an interview immediately after being crowned by former Miss Malawi UK, Alexina Phiri.

Phiri, a trained lawyer who is heading for Malawi to work at Supreme Court, said she was “so humbled and honoured “to have been Miss Malawi UK 2013.

“I now wish to give my warmest and dearest congratulations to our new reigning queen Rose,” she said.

Cynthia Kuku, Nottingham based hair dresser who had been styling the contestants said the judges delivered the “right verdict.”

The mother of the newly crowned Miss Malawi UK, Beatrice – a daughter of Malawi’s all time top photo journalist Dick Milanzi – said it was “a special night” for her to see that her daughter became a beauty queen.

In his address to the patrons, Malawi deputy high commissioner, John Tembo Jnr said the government which is led by President Peter Mutharika encourages the youth and Malawians in diaspora to engage in socially conscious activities and as well promote the country as a top tourist destination.

“Our country’s leadership  is pleased with its  young people taking  active role in leadership  through socially conscious activities,  I am pleased to note that the contestants have shown  intelligence, beauty, and  eloquence,” said Tembo.

Ben TV personality Pauline Long commended Malawians for organising such shows saying there is a lot to market the many positives of Malawi to the international community through culture and modelling shows.

Live music performances on the night kept the guests entertained. They included Malawian bases Mlaka Malilo, Dublin based Popp Dog and Holland based Marko Sadik.

It was a great evening of entertainment.

Kondi Bowoyeke Munthali, the co-organiser of the event, thanked Malawians in UK for supporting the annual pageant.

Henry Dokowe Ngwira, one of organizer of the event said he was delighted with the “overwhelming” support the audience gave to Mlaka’s performance and said there will be another live show for the artist.

DJ MC Chijota of Pamtengo  Radio was the hosts on the night.

I think behind miss UK Malawi up there in a blue dress deserves to be miss Malawi, because she has the qualities of what a MISS-Malawi is. The so-called miss Malawi in yellow , I think won bcoz of other things, she is beautiful but here in Malawi she could have contested for Miss Matofotofo (ladies with some weight).


She is beautiful but alibe ma qualities awu miss country yakutiyakutiyo. she is fat, Nde mwati she is 18 years old eti????? Okay tamva!
