Cape Town Gets To Host Miss SA Finale

Miss South Africa's finale will be hosted in Cape Town this year. This will be the first time the province has the honour of hosting the pageant which seems bright young women battle it out to be the face of South Africa.

“The City of Cape Town is pleased to partner with the Miss South Africa Organisation to bring the pageant to Cape Town. This is an iconic South African event which has, over the years, made the dreams of many young women a reality and elevated their status as change makers in society,” says Cape Town Executive Mayor Dan Plato.

South Africa is seen as one of the leading pageant countries in the world with a history of winners landing in top positions in Miss Universe.

The ten final competitors were on a tour in Cape Town for ten days this week.

The finale is set to take place on 24 October where South Africa's next ambassador will be crowned.

Plato said, "It's very very good for Cape Town. Very good for our economy looking at Covid-19. We want to put Covid behind our backs to roll out the red carpet for these beautiful ladies and to assist them with their event. I think Cape Town couldn't offer anything better than that".

The final three women will head to Miss World, Miss Universe and Miss Supranational to represent South Africa and compete for international titles.

"The world has start to focus on what we have to say as South Africans and through women, that's even a bigger thing. Bringing women's issues to the forefront."

The finalists are:

  • Aphelele Mbiyo, Eastern Cape
  • Busisiwe Esther Mmotha, Gauteng
  • Chantelle Pretorius, Gauteng
  • Jordan Van der Vyver, Western Cape
  • Karishma Ramden, Kwazulu-Natal
  • Lebogang Mahlangu, Gauteng
  • Melissa Nayimuli, Eastern Cape
  • Natasha Joubert, Gauteng
  • Shudufhadzo Musida, Limpopo
  • Thato Mosehle, North West


South Africa's current reigning Miss South Africa, Sasha-Lee Olivier, said, "Miss South Africa is a woman of substance. She's a woman who knows exactly what she wants. She has a vision for not only her future but for what she's gonna be taking other people along".

Miss SA has stated, "Shaped into brand ambassadors for our country, they become champions of women’s rights, thought leaders and savvy career women who inspire other young South Africans to fulfil their potential, recognise their self-worth and find their place in the world."

Miss South Africa is set to be the voice of female empowerment and be the trigger for changes that are needed in society.

The pageant will be screened live on M-Net and Mzansi Magic and streamed for an international audience.

CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation, Stephanie Weil, said, "Our success on the international stage means that there is a huge interest globally in the South African pageant.”
