2013-12-05 00:00

FIVE women from KwaZulu-Natal — Delisha Leigh-Ann Chetty (22), Julia Petersen (22), Nomhle Mtshali (23), Sihle Makhanya (22) and Ziyanda Msomi (22) — are among the 33 Miss SA semi-finalists who were presented in Johannesburg yesterday.

They will be up against 12 contenders from Gauteng, 10 from the Western Cape and two from the Free State. The Eastern Cape, Limpopo, North West and Mpumalanga each have one entrant in the 2014 pageant.

The semi-finalists now have to impress the judges: radio and TV personality Anele Mdoda, international DJ and recording artist Nkosinathi Innocent Maphumelo (aka DJ Black Coffee) and magazine editor and style icon Pnina Fenster.

The judges have already started evaluating the contestants in the run-up to the finals at Sun City on March 30, 2014.

The 12 finalists will be revealed on Sunday, February 2, on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) as part of the Miss South Africa reality show, which debuts on the channel on January 26, 2014.
