SAMUKELISIWE Nzimande from Taylors Halt, was recently announced the representative of her Zulu culture at the Indoni Miss Cultural South Africa 2017.

Nzimande said she does not allow that she comes from a rural area to define who she is or that it measures her potential.

“I’m a young, passionate and ambitious female.

“I’m a person who is proud of her culture and I would do anything in my power to conserve it,” she said.

Nzimande said she entered Indoni because she believes she can learn much from the event.

“It is also a great opportunity, especially for young people, because one is given the chance to know more about their culture and learn different languages, which is very important.”

She said she aims to influence young people by setting an example that conserving cultural practices through embracing them does not make one less beautiful or less intelligent or less popular.

“In fact, it’s the other way around,” she said.

Those who support her can SMS Indoni Zulu to 48496 at R1.50 per SMS.

The young girls will then go on to the Indoni­ Carnival in Durban on October 7, followed by the Indoni­ Miss Cultural SA finals at the Durban ICC in the evening where finalists will answer questions and perform before judges and an audience and the new 2017 queen and her princesses will be crowned.

Indoni SA CEO, Sibongile Nzimande congratulated the new princesses on becoming finalists and encouraged them to make the most of their opportunities.

“We wish every entrant good luck for the crowning ceremony on October 7. Indoni is proud of you all.” - Supplied.
