This is the first-ever pageant crown to be won by the Free State contestant.

“It is my first crown. With it, I am fulfilling my dream of being a voice for women and children,” she said.

She also received awards for the best cocktail dress and for displaying determination and perseverance throughout the competition.

“I put in a lot of work throughout this six-month journey, so I enjoy getting recognition.”

Nyaile-Maloka was the only contestant from the Free State having entered the pageant in KwaZulu-Natal.

She originates from Naledi Village in Qwaqwa. During her reign, she will be involved in a number of community empowerment programmes in Durban and in the Free State.
