Blantyre City Mayor Noel Chalamanda will tonight host the corporate in a special event dubbed ‘The Miss Blantyre Corporate Night’ at Ryalls Hotel in Blantyre.
The event has been organised by Blantyre City Council in readiness for the Miss Blantyre Beauty Pageant which is scheduled for October 30 at the College of Medicine Sports Complex.
Blantyre City Council’s public relations manager Anthony Kasunda said the mayor’s office is in full support of youth initiatives such as Miss Blantyre; hence, the corporate event.
“As a council, we believe youth should never be leaders of tomorrow, rather they should be leaders of today and be supported in areas of their strength and enterprise,” said Kasunda.
“Fashion and pageants are something which excite a lot of young people and it is almost every girl’s dream to be a queen. Whoever wins will take up social and community roles to lead fellow youth into responsible and active citizenry” he said.
Kasunda further said as part of the grand prize to the winner, this year’s Miss Blantyre will, during her tenure of office, be an ambassador for the Keep Blantyre City Clean and Green Initiative.
This campaign has been Blantyre’s popular investment as the city is empowering residents to practice health and sanitation measures for the health of their lives and the beauty of the City.
He mentioned rehabilitation of roundabouts and other sites in the City as some of the activities the council is implementing in partnership with corporate residents.
