On August 9th, 2019 was crowned Miss South Africa 2019 taking over the reign from Tamaryn Green. The crowning ceremony took place at Times Square Sun Arena. The former Miss Sa, Tamaryn Green, a medical student, had a glittering reign and finished runner-ups at Miss Universe 2018 held in Bangkok, Thailand.
Bonang Matheba once again hosted the pageant and wowed audiences with her majestic looks and on-point presenting skills.
The all-female judging panel consisted of radio personality Anele Mdoda, actress Connie Ferguson, former Miss SA Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, model and lawyer Thando Hopa, and reigning Miss Universe Catriona Gray.
The theme for this year’s pageant is Dreamwalkers and the pageant is aiming to break out of the narrow idea of what it means to be beautiful and what it means to be a beauty queen.
For the first time, the public got to vote for a single beauty queen who will progress to the final ten.
Zozibini beat 15 other dazzling young women from across the country to scoop the prestigious crown. She made it to the top two and beat out Sasha-Lee Olivier.
Zozibini was a fan favourite and bowled over the judges when she stressed the importance of education.
“I am a firm believer in education, and I would advise that they push education. We might not be able to do much for elders, but we can do so much for children by starting them early,” she told the judges.
Anele said she was looking for a contestant that had “a lot of little stories” to make her relatable to the whole of South Africa. Demi-leigh said that pageant was “the most important job interview of your life”, while Connie said she was blown away by the talent.
“They are all so passionate about what they want to do, should they become Miss SA. They are not even deterred by the crown, they already have plans of what they want to do, even if they are not crowned Miss SA.”
