Vanessa Ukevwe Chinyemba, 23, bested 11 other finalists to win Miss Zambia 2020 in a national competition held last December 30 at The Corner Cafe in Lusaka.
The public relations student will represent her southern African country at the 70th Miss World pageant to be held in the last quarter of this year.
Angela Malenga and Victoria Mulengula were the first and second runners-up, respectively, while Ashley Mwanza, Laurisca Nzeba Kalongo, and Emma Mwaba completed the Top 6.
The new Miss Zambia advocates for the uplifting of standards of living in the community, orphaned children, and the less looked upon members of the society. She loves cooking, fitness, reading, and traveling.
Miss Zambia 2020 was presented by Platinum Events Productions Africa and streamed live on MOZO TV.
