Zozibini Tunzi is a very busy lady after winning Miss SA and Miss Universe. She has had to move to New York while she holds the Miss Universe title. While she is away, the Miss SA runner-up Sasha-Lee Olivier has assumed the responsibilities associated with Miss SA.
Briefly.co.za learned that Olivier took part in the Miss World competition this year but did not progress any further after making it into the top 40.
She made history when she entered the Miss South Africa pageant and won second place. As runner-up, she takes over Tunzi's duties.
This is a common practice and happened in 2017 when Miss SA Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters won the title of Miss Universe. Adé van Heerden, the Miss SA runner up took over the duties of Demi-Leigh. Adé had to postpone her medical internship in order to perform her duties according to iol.co.za.
Brains and beauty seem to be a common element in Miss SA competitions as Tamaryn Green, Miss SA 2018 and the first runner-up in the Miss Universe pageant was a medical student.
In other news, Briefly.co.za learned that Zozibini Tunzi might be an angel of some kind who is above the rest of us, she showed that she's human when she broke down in tears.
