Entries for Miss South Africa 2023 open on Monday, March 13, at 15h00 with several exciting new additions to this year’s competition being announced at the same time.

Says Stephanie Weil, CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation: “We have become known on the global scene as ‘pageant disruptors’. We constantly strive to keep the competition relevant and fresh and we believe our fans are going to be delighted and excited with what we’ve come up this year.

“While we are ensuring the Miss South Africa campaign loses none of the attributes fans and followers have come to love, we’ve also challenged ourselves to think bigger and better to make certain the Miss South Africa competition grows and evolves and retains relevance and interest in an ever-changing world.

“I like to think of it as ‘pageantry revolutionized’,” adds Weil, “so be sure you don’t miss Monday’s announcement to find out what it’s all about!”

The Miss SA organization recently announced that Miss South Africa 2022 runner-up Ayanda Thabethe will represent Mzansi at the Miss Supranational pageant in Poland on 14 July.

“I have some big shoes to fill. Miss South Africa 2021 Lalela Mswane is the reigning Miss Supranational and she in turn took the crown from Miss Namibia Chanique Rabe. I am looking forward to this next step in my journey. However, just as important to me, is the launch of Project Khulisa which I hope will make a difference in communities who need it most.”

Thabethe has always been passionate about food security and nutrition and was in her final year of a BSc in Dietetics and Human Nutrition at the University of KwaZulu Natal when she entered the pageant last year.

I believe that good food is the beginning of a better life for everyone and nourishment is the cornerstone. My goal is to improve the future of all South Africans through nutritional intervention and innovation by mobilising food solutions through initiatives such as community vegetable gardens, food parcels and education around diet. By breaking the poverty cycle, I hope to combat malnutrition and hunger,” she said.

Througout her Project Khulisa campaign (“khulisa” is the isiZulu word for “to grow” or “magnify”), Thabethe will be sharing cost effective food recipes while starting discussions on social media around how what we eat affects our health.
