SOME of the country’s renowned actors, actresses and radio personalities are expected to grace the Hammarsdale Junction Mall on Saturday at the pre-judging round of Mr and Miss Ulwazi Hammarsdale pageant, the final of which will be on 28 November. The pageant was founded three years ago to identify two young people who will serve as role models for Ulwazi­ Group and Hammarsdale­ communities.

The pageant forms part of the three-day Ulwazi- Hammarsdale festival, which is held in partnership with eThekwini Municipality, to take place from 27 to 29 November at Mpumalanga Stadium.

The pageant is the brainchild of Hammarsdale-born businessman Bongani Mabizela, the founder of Ulwazi Group, a company that focuses on engineering, project management, housing, property, events management, transport, logistics, mining operations, cleaning and protection services.

The festival also includes a soccer tournament and Mabizela hopes to plough back to his community by enriching people and promoting unity through art, culture, beauty and sport.

Marketing and events manager Leoni Black said they are looking for clean, young individuals who will be under the mentorship of former fashion model turned fashion stylist Derrick Mhlongo.

“Two young people will be chosen at the final pageant on 28 November. Each winner will walk away with R100 000 which will go towards tuition fees at a tertiary institution of their choice.

“This Saturday we are having a pre-judging round and are calling young people from Hammarsdale and surrounds to come in their numbers. Entry forms are available on the day.”

The emcee is Tshatha Ngobe from Ukhozi FM. Judges include Cindy Mabizela, deputy CEO of Ulwazi Group, Siyabonga Thwala from Isibaya, Melusi Yeni from Muvhango, Thando Thabethe from Generations the Legacy, Vuyo Dabula from Generations the Legacy and Dawn King from Uzalo.
