Some Facts about Lalela Mswane
Lalela Mswane, a 24-year-old LLB graduate, ballerina and model, was crowned Miss South Africa 2021 at Grand West Arena in Cape Town on Saturday evening.
It was the 63th crowning of Miss SA and saw the biggest gathering of reigning and former beauty queens, including the current Miss World, Miss Supranational and Miss Universe.
Mswane succeeds Shudufhadzo Musida and it was announced that she would soon be preparing for the upcoming Miss Universe 2021, which will be hosted in the Israeli resort of Eilat in December.
Runners-up were Zimi Mabunzi from the Eastern Cape and Moratwe Masima from Gauteng.
Mswane hails from the remote village of KwaSokhulu in northern KwaZulu-Natal, on the outskirts of the small town of KwaMbonambi, outside Richards Bay. She is the first Miss SA from Zululand. The news of her being crowned has been met with emotional statements from people in her community.
KwaSokhulu is an impoverished community, where many of the villagers are subsistence farmers. It is an area that still needs urgent attention and it is what many hope she will help to do. The rate of unemployment in the community is high.
Mswane visited her community in August, going to Ontingweni Primary School with her mother.
During the final stages of the competition, where the final three contestants state the cause most important to them, Mswane highlighted the issue of the high youth unemployment rate in the country.
