TWENTY finalists competed for the crown in the 2016 Miss Msunduzi pageant held recently in the Pietermaritzburg City Hall.

The pageant was held on the Human Rights Day holiday and Mthobisi Mkhize of Umvithi Rural­ Youth Development Foundation said this is because they want to enhance cohesion between people of different races and backgrounds within the Msunduzi Municipality.

Sbusile Ngcobo from Kwa-Swayimane was crowned Miss Msunduzi and took over from Terene­ Thomas who last year was crowned Miss Msunduzi and Miss South African Local Government Association (Salga) KZN.

Speaking to Maritzburg Echo Ngcobo said: “Winning Miss Msunduzi is an opportunity for me to work with the youth and empower them to be proud of whom they are.”

She encouraged the youth to not be held back by their fears and doubts of success.

“I encourage the youth to use the opportunities they are given to the best of their ability, to be confident, to get out there and get experience and to not let their situation hold them back.”

First princess was Sbahle Mkhize from Acacia­ Park and Nomalungelo Hlela was second princess.

Judges were uMgungundlovu FM news editor­ Bongani Gina, Miss Salga KZN Terene Thomas, Lungelo Sithole from Msunduzi Municipality’s communication and marketing section, CEO of Stanger Production Company Neo Hamilton and Thando Shozi.

Mkhize congratulated the winners and thanked everyone who contributed towards making the Miss Msunduzi pageant successful.

He also encouraged people to be more involved in youth development projects to help empower the youth of uMgungundlovu.
