There was pomp and colour at the Carnivore Restaurant on Friday night during the 2016 Mr and Miss Zetech University.
The event that attracted a total of 24 models from the Thika Road based private institution, kicked off with homegrown artistes taking the stage to entertain the audience.
The emcee for the night was Churchill Show’s Sleepy David and Owago Onyiro while among the notable guests was the Director of Digital Communication in the Office of the President, Mr Dennis Itumbi and former Chairman of Youth Fund Gor Semelang’o.
When the models finally graced the runway after a prolonged delay, they began by engaging in a group dance that left their fellow students wanting more before they got out to battle for the six categories.
The models were also grilled over wide-ranging issues during a Q and A session to test their communication skills.
The panel of judges included renowned Showbiz writer Stevens Muendo (The Standard), Shamillah Kiptoo etiquette coach at Shammy’s etiquette boutique, KTN’s Maisha Mzua host, Jamal Gadafi, Miss Universe Kenya 2014/2015 Gaylyne Ayugi and actor Manasseh Nyagah.
