BETHLEHEM. Z The next edition of Miss Dihlabeng will boast a new title Z that of Mr Dihlabeng Z when the pageant is presented at the end of the current period of the reigning queen, Lebohang Motloung.

This is according to Shadrack Maboea, the main sponsor and marketing official of the Miss Dihlabeng Beauty Pageant.

He says this is due to the growing pressure from the community who has been asking endlessly about the introduction of the Mr Dihlabeng title.

“Having considered all the facts, we had to accede to the community’s request.

“After all, it is their project and we had to consider what makes them happy,” Maboea says.

He adds that the Mr Dihlabeng title will be in the same line as that of the Mr Free State or Mr South Africa title.

“The Mr Dihlabeng title will be looking to find an aspirational young man; a young man who is balanced in health, intelligence, passion, drive and ambition.

“He must be a leader who will inspire and motivate; a brave young man who will act as a role model for boys and men to aspire to.

“He will make a big difference towards a better Dihlabeng,” says Maboea.

He further says Mr Dihlabeng has to be a man of excellence, integrity, professionalism, competence and compassion.

These are his basic characteristics and he will be a man of superior qualities, intelligence, commitment, good looks and health.

“If our last installment of Miss Dihlabeng is anything to go by, wait until you see the next one.

“It is going to blow everyone away,” Maboea says confidently.

Lebohang Motloung, the current Miss Dihlabeng, was crowned at a glittering event on 19 December 2015 at the Bethlehem Town Hall.

The Miss Dihlabeng Beauty Pageant is the initiative of the office of the executive mayor, in conjunction with the Youth Development Office and the Department of Community Services.
