Isabel Chikoti has been crowned as the winner of Miss Universe Zambia 2017. The finale of the pageant was held at at Mulungushi Conference Centre. She will now represent her country at Miss Universe 2017 later this year. She battled out 16 other delegates to win the title. It is interesting to know that Zambia was absent in the pageant since 2010. The last representative of Zambia at Miss Universe was Alice Rowlands Musukwa, so technically she succeeds Alice Rowlands Musukwa as the new Miss Universe Zambia. On other hand, Alisa Rowlands is the new national director of the pageant and she will be sending the delegates from Zambia to Miss Universe now onwards.
At the same event, Mercy Mukwiza was declared as the first runner-up while Luwi Kawanda was declared as the second runners-up. Isabel Chikoti previously held the title of Miss Africa Ukraine 2013 and now is the torch bearer of Zambia at Miss Universe. Zambia has never won the crown before, do you think this year it can happen?
