MISS Eswatini First Princess Nondumiso Dlamini will be representing Eswatini in the Miss University Africa (MUA) pageant.

The 22-year-old beauty queen will be competing with students from 53 other countries.

The pageant will take place in Lagos, Nigeria.

 Miss University Africa (MUA) is the only non-bikini pageant on the continent comprising the 54 African nations despite their religious beliefs and language barrier without any form of segregation. It celebrates beauties with brains and discourages indecent dressing amongst Africa youth and also celebrates African cultures.

The winner of this prestigious pageant becomes the official international Queen for African continent and a United Nations students ambassador to champion the cause of education and empowerment for the girl child.

 Dlamini said it was a great honour to represent the country.

“I am giving it my all and I hope for great support from my country for the votes since I am still in the voting stage to make it to the Top 10,” said Dlamini.

She also mentioned that she was excited about the pageant since it was not all about beauty. “Beauty is not everything. If our youth would stop wasting time and money on vanity things and start investing the unemployment rate would decrease.

“I won Miss Eswatini first princess and Miss Congenitally 2018/19 and it was not the way I expected,” she said. “I have learnt that life does not give you what you want, but what you work hard for and it is never easy.  It only takes patience, self discipline and perseverance to achieve whatever it is that you want,” she explained.

She said from this pageant, she wishes to gain experience and exposure to different cultures.

The public can vote for Dlamini by simply liking her pictures on Instagram and on Facebook under the Miss University Africa page(MUA), comments do contribute to the votes.
