HARRISMITH. – Jefferson Ashafa and Masake Maleka have been crowed Mr and Miss Spring 2015.

The duo was crowned at the competition organised by the Tsiame Youth Club in the Harrismith Town Hall.

Ashafa and Maleka have each won a scholarship to study at the Qwaqwa Campus of the University of the Free State (UFS), thanks to Ramothello Raynard Attorneys.

Even though Maleka is still in gr. 11, according to organiser Lekgotla Fish Mokoena, she will be mentored until she has completed matric. Therafter she will receive the scholarship to further her studies.

The two also received clothing vouchers and Maleka also won a one-night stay at the African Sky Hotel.

Mokoena said the organisers were happy with the event. He said the commitment of the contestants and the support of the community were overwhelming.

“It was the first time we hosted an event of this nature, but it never looked like it. We were aware that people loved what we did for them and we hope to make it bigger and better next year,” Mokoena said.

He said they planned to make it a Thabo Mofutsanyana District event.

“We want to see ourselves in a position where we will be able to accommodate everyone in the district. We hope more sponsors will come on board so that we can make our dream come true.”

He said next year they would make sure they advertise the event in time so that everyone in the Free State would know about it
