Ugly pageant founder David “Apama” Machowa said he was happy with the overwhelming response from the people, and from that he is confident the pageant is aimed for greater heights. “It was a well-attended ceremony and individuals gave so much appreciation to the pageant by offering sponsorship and financial support to the pageant,” said Machowa.
“Mr Horonga of Prime Leisure Centre (Ruwa) gave us $500 in support of running the pageant, Mr Eddy and Mr Mukandi of Mhizha Sports Bar and Night Club in Budiriro 4 gave us $1500 to assist in our trips to scout when we travel with Mr Kaseke of Coin Security putting in $1500 to support our pageant.

For us Mr Ugly is receiving a big boost and support from all over the country so far. We are already starting our provincials as from April up to early June with the Mr ugly Zimbabwe competition in August.
