Basetsana Kumalo is undergoing surgery after she fell and broke her ankle yesterday.

The timing couldn’t be worse for poor Bassie, who was set to appear as a judge at the Miss South Africa finals in Joburg on Saturday.

The businesswoman and former Miss SA “had an unfortunate accident yesterday at her son’s school after watching him play at a concert,” organisers said in a statement.

“She slipped in the rain and broke her ankle and is currently in hospital undergoing surgery.”

According to the Sun International PR Manager Claudia Henkel, pageant organisers have decided not to replace her on the judging panel and her pre-pageant scores will remain.

“She has already made an enormous contribution to this year’s pageant and we feel that she is irreplaceable at this late stage. We will miss her on the evening,” Claudia said in a statement.

Just a few days ago when Basetsana wrote on social media about how happy she was to be judging Miss SA.
