It’s that time again when beauty queens from various tertiary institutions across the country face off for the ultimate rights, the Miss University Kenya title. Organized by Pambazuka Entertainment, the pageant is set to take place on 7th February at Nairobi’s Carnival Grounds with a total of 17 contestants battling it out for the chance to represent the country in the continental pageant in the Democratic Republic of Congo this March.

Amongst the participating Universities are the University of Nairobi, Kenyatta University, JKUAT, KEMU, St Paul’s University, Zetech College, Multi-Media University, Dedan Kimathi University of Science & Technology, KEMU, Catholic University of East Africa and Masinde Muliro University, KCA and USIU.

KU, CUEA and Multi-Media University lead with the most representatives which as shocking as it may be is no surprise compared to the fact that JKUAT actually have a representative. It’s understandable therefore why all eyes will rest on JKUAT’s Joan Maina if only out of sheer curiosity.

Immaculate Aquinata (no typo, sic!) and Dorcas Omollo will be flying Zetech’s flag as Minky Wanja, Eunice Kamau and Rosa Waruguru represent KU in the contest. Bernice Mugambi and Christine Nyambura will represent the University of Nairobi and Egerton University respectively while Ruth Mzinga will front KCA. Multi-Media’s trio comprises of Laureen Mwai, Franchie Wanjiku and Carol Makena while Bertha Chege and Daisy Thiongo will rep KEMU. Others include Ashleys Mazuri, Mercy Omakada, Faith Wanjiku and Rebecca Wairimu.

The current title is held by Carmille Milton of Catholic University who represented Kenya at the Continental finals held in Lagos, Nigeria last year.

The beauties are currently training in Nairobi before heading down to the coastal city of Mombasa for a boot camp ahead of the finals in Nairobi next weekend.

During the training, the beauties also signed up for the ‘Passion for Peace’ pledge, in so doing, committing to advocate for and promote peace prior to, during and after the forthcoming 2013 general elections in Kenya.
