LOCAL township beauty pageant Mr and Miss Gamalakhe, founded­ in 2012 by PhumlaniM Foundation (PMF), has been renamed due to its success and growth over the years.

The pageant will now be called The Face of Port Shepstone Beauty and Lifestyle Event.

The event will also have a red carpet and photo booth at the entrance.

The categories are females 13-16, 17-23 and 36 upwards and males 16-25.
