NEW Miss World Zimbabwe 2015 Annie- Grace Mutambu was on Friday night attacked together with her sister Anesu at their Waterfalls home in the capital just a few hours after her crowning.
Miss Zimbabwe Trust spokesperson Tendai Chirau and Anne-Grace’s mother Ellen Mutambu confirmed the attack.
“It is true that our newly crowned Miss World Zimbabwe 2015 Annie- Grace Mutambu was attacked on Friday in the company of her young sister.
She is however in a stable condition as she just sustained minor injuries,”Chirau.
The queen’s mother said:”Glory be to God, my daughters are alive after being attacked by three men as they were coming from collecting a laptop from my sister’s house. They sustained minor injuries, according to doctors.”
“She lost her laptop and a mobile phone,”Mutambu said.
The 19-year-old Mutambu on Friday replaced Emily Tatanga Kachote (25) who was unceremoniously stripped of her title on allegations that her nude pictures were being circulated on social media.
Mutambu got a Kia Picanto vehicle, 40 inch LED television set, juice maker, African attire, a manicure and pedicure package valued at $2 000 valid for the duration of her reign.
She will represent the nation at the 65th edition of the Miss World pageant to be held on December 19 this year at the Crown of Beauty Theatre in Sanya,China.
