Tiwonge Munthali defeated 15 contestants before getting her hands on the coveted crown.

Cecilia Khofi officially hand over the crown to her successor Tiwonge Munthali in Lilongwe.

Munthali is not new to pageantry. She won Miss Heritage crown in November 2016 in Lilongwe and went on to compete in an international beauty pageant  which aims at promoting and celebrating heritage – the Miss Heritage Global contest in South Africa.

She will uphold the objectives of this year’s Miss Malawi theme of raising a voice against population growth in the country.

The 24-year-old model studying banking and finance  at Malawi Assemblies of God University in Lilongwe and has been    an intern at CDH Investment Bank captivated  the crowd when she  paraded in traditional, bikini, casual and evening wear.

The beauty queen says she decided to contest for Miss Malawi Beauty Pageant after being persuaded following her role in Miss Heritage and she was “delighted” to have emerged the winner, saying she is ready to contribute to the country.

“I am so thankful for this crown, glory to God,” said the Mzuzu based girl.

Former Miss Malawi Cecilia Khofi, 24, who handed the crown to Tiwonge Muthali, said the new beauty queen deserved the title.

“Congratulations Tiwonge. You have a long but great journey ahead of you, wishing you the very best,”Khofi said in a post on her Instagram page after posting a photo of the two beauty queens.

Mayamimo Msosa, a former princes in Miss Malawi Beauty Pageamy, current in Canada said she was not surprised with Tiwonge Munthali being crowned new queen “because you have always been a queen, this is one of your many crowns, the world is yours to conquer.”

As winner, Munthali went away with a Nissan  Tiida Latio, received a laptop, a mobile phone and runners up got  consolation-prizes with a combined value of K7 million.

Mwabi Mfune was crowned first and Miss Blockbuster while arguably the shortest contestant, Chimwemwe Buleya is the second princess.

The Miss Malawi 2018 has been sponsored by Itel Malawi, Umodzi Park, Blockbuster and Poundstretcher, Malawi Website Host, Riverside Hotel, Glam and Glory, Family Planning Association of Malawi, Printer Systems and Adlib Executive Lodge.

Nation Publications Limited (NPL) and Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) revived the contest under the theme ‘Beauty with Purpose’.

Most Malawians have been hardwired to hate themselves so they project that inbuilt hatred unto others. Malawian women are so beautiful inside and outside, as my South African friend would always say.

…because the outgoing was not eligible to contest for a second term. The winner could only beat those who contested. Did your sister contest? Boo huhu!
