THE wife of a man voted Mr Ugly Harare 2012 has revealed that she was never in doubt that her fella is the ugliest of them all.
 
Alice Chabhanga says she wouldn’t change a thing about William Masvinu’s looks, or lack of – because she fears losing him.

“I know that my husband is very ugly, that’s the reason I supported his participation in this contest. We came here for glory and we got it,” she beamed proudly after Monday night’s contest at a Harare sports club.

“Because of his ugliness, I’m confident I’ve been able to keep him to myself since I believe other women would shun him.”
 
The all-female judging panel on the night clearly shared Chabhanga’s poor assessment of her man.

The NewsDay newspaper reports that when Masvinu, from Epworth, showed his face on stage, “it was quite clear he would take the crown”.

“Unlike other contestants who frowned to look uglier, Masvinu exhibited his natural ugliness with confidence,” the paper reported.

Masvinu described his facial appearances as a “gift from God”.
 
“I know that I’m very ugly and when I heard of this contest, I just said the crown is mine,” he said.

“Being ugly is a gift from God and look where this gift has done to me. I'm on my way to fame and I now have a few dollars in my pocket,” the 38-year-old said after receiving the first prize of US$100 and a night’s accommodation at a Harare hotel..

David Machowa, the organiser of the event, announced plans for a Miss Ugly Harare.
 
“This is not just the end but the beginning of greater (and uglier?) things to come,” he said.
