Management[edit]

After reviving in 2001 the pageant continued to crown a Miss Malawi until 2012. It was managed by Carver Bhima's company Events Management. [2] Since 2016, the contest has been managed by Nation Publications and Zodiak Broadcasting Station.

Controversies[edit]

In 2010 Ella Kabambe was not the official Miss Malawi; this was Faith Chibale, but Kabambe represented the country in the Miss World pageant. [3] At the 2012 Miss World, Susan Mtegha pushed Miss New Zealand, Collette Lochore, during the opening headshot of the pageant, claiming that Miss New Zealand was in her space.[4] This action caused a stir throughout the media.
