BOHLOKONG. – The stage is set for the crowning of Miss Dihlabeng 2015-’16 and scores of people from the Dihlabeng Local Municipality and the surrounding towns are expected to descend the Bethlehem on Town Hall on Saturday (19/12).

This venue will be turned into a mini Hollywood when the cream of the crop in the beauty industry, various celebrities, community leaders and, most importantly, the youth, will walk the red carpet to witness one of the most important events on the social calendar for Dihlabeng.

The 24 finalists are ready to compete for the prestigious crown, which comes with a lot of responsibilities towards the youth.

Vusi Dlamini, youth development officer of the local municipality, says the winner of the contest has to set an example and be ready to serve the community and the youth in particular.

“We are very excited,” Dlamini says.

“It has been hard work. I want to thank the team who worked night and day in making sure that the event takes place successfully.

“I wish all the contestants good luck and let the best contestant win.”

The razzmatazz and the ululations will begin on Friday (18/12), when the contestants will parade the streets of Bethlehem. The parade stops at the village square, the Dihlabeng Mall, Baken Park and, finally, the Bohlokong Township.

The girls and their entourage will be led by blue lights, bikers and a host of motor vehicles to show support for the contestants.

Shadrack Maboea, sponsorship and marketing official of the event, says the winners will walk away with scholarship vouchers and other exciting prizes.

“Nothing is more important than education. This is a nation-building project, aimed at improving lives. But Saturday is about the glitz and glamour. Grab your ticket, polish your dancing shoes and dress to kill. Let’s meet at the hall,” Maboea says.

Miss Dihlabeng is an initiative of the office of the executive mayor, in conjunction with the youth development office and the Department of Community Services.
