TSHESENG. – Christmas has come early for Puseletso Maloka, the Miss Indoni Culture South Africa queen and her king, Nhlanhla Moloi.

Puseletso and Nhlanhla were each rewarded with R5 000 cash at the recent official handing over of the presents to the queen.

Puseletso, who grew up in the dusty streets of the Thibella Village in Qwa-qwa, was crowned Miss Indoni Culture South Africa at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, early in October.

After winning the contest, the Indoni management drove the queen from Durban to her home village, where she received a world-class welcome.

Some people believed that this young and ambitious gr. 11 learner of the Manankoe Secondary School deserved something more – at least either a provincial or a district welcome after her extraordinary achievement. That was however not granted by the local and district municipalities.

Even though she did not get that heroic welcome, Puseletso will now be proud to drive her own car.

She was presented with a Toyoya Etios, a R100 000 study bursary and a certificate.

Mapule Maloka, the queen’s mother, said she was proud of her daughter.

“I want to thank everyone who helped my daughter to reach this big achievement – without them she wouldn’t have achieved this. We all know that it takes the whole village to raise a child,” Mapule said proudly.

She committed herself to monitoring the queen in every step she takes.

“She is now the face of South Africa and everyone is watching her.

“I will make sure she works hard at school.”

Speaking to Express Eastern Free State, Mofumahadi Mamojela Theko, queen of the Bakoena Tribe, said she was very happy with the work that Indoni was doing.

“This is a huge motivation, especially to the young girls to keep their virginity, because all of them will want to be just like Puseletso,” Theko said.

She said the next competition would be tough because everyone would want a car.

“I believe they were all motivated. They should know that virginity can help them in achieving many things and they will cherish it.”
