ELMAS Moses beams after being voted Zimbabwe’s UGLIEST man.

You would think that’s a turn-off for women. But the 43-year-old dad of ten is happily married to two women.

Moses, a traditional healer from Mberengwa, won Mr Ugly 2010 in Beitbridge last week Saturday – beating a strong field of 35 other men also convinced they were offensive to the sight.

After claiming his crown in the pageant supported by the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority, Moses had a terrifying message for the beauty police: “If you think I’m ugly, wait until you see my four brothers.

“It’s a pity they couldn’t get here on time.”

Moses, who was the first runner-up last year to eventual winner, Peter Chikomakoma, added: “"I was disappointed when I came second last year, but this time I worked hard on my weaknesses.”

James James came second in the pageant, with Hilary Maunga third.

For his ugliness, Moses walked away with the first prize of R1,500 while his two runners up pocketed R750 and R500 respectively.

The pageant is the brainchild of Dominic Gwatirisa.

“Pageants are generally centred on women ... we want to shift that mindset and have fun with men from across the country,” Gwatisira said.

Next year regional finals are planned to cast the net wider for Zimbabwean men who are contrary to beauty.
