The drama continues over former Miss SA Zozibini Tunzi’s absence at the recently concluded Miss SA finale, which saw Natasha Joubert emerge as the new Miss SA 2023.
According to reports, Tunzi was co-opted to co-host the event’s finale but eventually failed to show up. It was alleged that the event organizers failed to take care of her wardrobe for the occasion. It is unclear if they had an agreement that stipulates Miss SA should take care of that.
Anyway, she eventually failed to show up for the occasion. She did not stop at that but also removed Miss SA from her Instagram bio, leading to speculations online as to the real reason for the whole drama.
Addressing the situation, Miss SA noted that the former beauty queen was invited to the occasion as a VIP guest. the organizers failed to address whether she was slated to co-host the event, as reported by some media houses.
South Africans have been sharing their thoughts on the controversy, with tweeps showing support for the former beauty queen and her decision to distance herself from the beauty pageant.
It remains to be seen how long the whole drama will play out and if Tunzi will include her Miss SA crown in her bio in the future.
