Robin Muthami and Rit Piwuna were crowned Mr and Miss Catholic University of Eastern Africa respectively on October 7th 2017 at the Carnivore Simba Saloon in Nairobi.
The jam packed event, supported by a number of sponsors was an opportunity for students to show off their creativity in fashion and design as well showcase their talents.
From traditional gowns, freestyle to evening wear, models, ladies and gentlemen flaunt their gorgeous dressings to the amazement of the fans.
The judges were Mr Wlkins Fathir, Samantha Verwoerd, Wendy Bella, Mercy Mwangi and DJ Kolo.
Simba Saloon was so packed, part of the audience had to stand at the back just to get a glimpse of the models.
The race was arguably tight and after the final category was showcased, the judges had to deliberate for close to an hour before coming out for the question and answer section.
With the number of contestants cut down to ten from 24 for the question and answer question, the contestants were challenged to answering mainly based on their school, also what winning would mean to them and how they would help the community around them.
Most of the fun escalated once dancers from the campus and students randomly being called up to dance to hits from different African countries graced the stage.
Kenyan music icon Wyre also lit up the stage with an electric performance – getting the crowd to dance to his hits over the years.
When all was said and done, Robin and Rita emerged the winners. Robin is a first-year student in the Faculty of Law while Rit is a second-year student in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
Congratulations to Robin and Rit!!!
