Mandemwa stunned judges with a colorful costume, which she says was inspired by Victoria Falls.

“My national costume is a resemblance of my passion I have had as a model at the age of six with a combination of my passion in promoting local tourism in my country, it’s called The Victoria Falls Wonder” she said explaining the design.
