The Miss Tourism Zimbabwe Finals, slated for Saturday, have been postponed after seven of the 19 models who were expected to take to the ramp were involved in an accident last night.

The accident occurred Vumba-Mutare road.

Reports say the bus overturned once before bus landing on its left side.

Miss Tourism Zimbabwe chairperson Sibusisiwe Dube confirmed the accident as well as the postponement of the pageant.

“All the girls have been taken to Murambe Garden Hospital and are under observation so that they get a comprehensive check-up,” she said.

“They are stable as we speak.  It is sad that such an unfortunate event transpired and we thank God because the accident was not fatal.

“A support team has been dispatched to Vumba, to assist, since the event will no longer take place as scheduled.”
