South Africa has a new beauty queen, a combination of beauty with brains. Her name is Dr Claude Mashego, a 24-year-old former Miss Mpumalanga, who was crowned the first Miss World SA in a beauty pageant hosted by Minnie Dlamini over the weekend.
What is Miss World SA?
When Briefly News previously spoke to the owner, Carol Bouwer, she said:
"It is absolutely exciting to work with young South African women to change the narrative about our prospects and to reposition our nation beyond beauty, but looking at women's leadership, philanthropy and sisterhood."
Dr Claude Mashego was crowned and congratulated as first Miss World SA
The newly crowned beauty queen took to her Instagram to share her glory in the show that was broadcast on SABC 3.
Here are the congratulatory messages that came in:
"MISS WORLD SA. God’s glory shown through you."
"Congratulations, queen!!!!! I wish you all the best for the year ahead."
"You are a queen inside and out."
"Hue congratulations Claude! May you have a blessed reign ahead."
