THE Unthinkable Events (Pty) Ltd, a company which was established by an entrepreneur from KwaDwesi, will be hosting a series of beauty pageants to promote youth development in the Nelson Mandela Bay.

Vuyolwethu Mbinambina (33) started her company to make sure that young people stay away from unhealthy activities and focus on positive ones.

The focus is specifically on minimising drug and alcohol abuse and the number of school dropouts and teenage pregnancies.

The Unthinkable Events will be hosting different types of events, including academic awards, school debates and educational camps, in various areas of Nelson Mandela Bay to further their cause.

The first of these events is a beauty pageant that will take place on June 30 at Henry Fasi Hall in KwaDwesi.

The beauty pageant is split into two age categories. Mr and Miss Cutelligent is for children aged 6 to 12, while Mr and Miss Beautelligent is for teenagers aged 13 to 18.

This first event is only open to residents of the KwaDwesi, KwaDwesi Extension, Joe Slovo and KwaMagxaki areas.

After this pageant, The Unthinkable Events will launch similar events in other areas of the Nelson Mandela Bay.

Mbinambina is running the event with no budget to speak of. It is her hope that this event will put her on the map to gain funding for future events.

She said she has two wonderful ladies lending their support for the event.

“I want to create employment for people in the long run.

“For the pageant, I bought tiaras, sashes and presents and we have embroidered T-shirts as our uniform,” she said.

Mr and Miss Cutelligent and Mr and Miss Beautelligent will take place on June 30 at Henry Fasi Hall in KwaDwesi from 12 noon until 5pm.

Entry for the pageant has already closed.
