Miss South Africa 2022 runner-up Ayanda Thabethe is ready to represent Mzansi at the Miss Supranational 2023.

The KwaZulu-Natal born star made it to the top 24 and is also Group 4’s Supra Chat winner, meaning that she is advancing to the top 10 semi-final round of Supra Chat.

Next month, Thabethe will walk the Miss Supranational stage in Poland, where South Africa’s Lalela Mswane will crown her successor.

People rallying behind her want to see her win so that she, and the current titleholder, Mswane, can have a beautiful South African moment on stage.

“Powerhouse 🔥🔥🇿🇦I’ve been saying I can’t wait to see ur reaction when Lalela is crowning👑 you as her successor,” commented @_viweh.

Another Instagram user @valentine_machethe said: “I said this before, and I will say it again:THERE is no need to go to Poland, because Queen Lali can crown you here at home.”

Thabethe will participate in Miss Supranational 2023 in Poland on July 14.

In other news, reigning Miss South Africa, Ndavi Nokeri, partnered with Richfield to raise R1.3m for Ed-Unite.

This partnership is part of Nokeri’s pledge when she was crowned in 2022 and promised to help equalise the playing field by ensuring equal education for all – regardless of colour or economic status.

This affiliation means that 10 South African learners aged 18 years or older, who enter the Ed-Unite Richfield competition stand to win full academic bursaries to study at one of Richfield’s eight campuses around the country.

The bursary is for full-time contact studies towards a full-time undergraduate qualification in 2024 or distance learning studies towards an undergraduate qualification, starting in August 2023.
