The second time was a charm for Miss SA 2019, Zozibini Tunzi, who was a semifinalist at the competition in 2017. Now, Miss SA hopeful, Kgothatso Dithebe, hopes to follow in Zozi’s footsteps.

Having entered the prestigious beauty pageant in 2019, Dithebe - who had made it to the top 5 in 2019 - has once again made it into this year’s top 10 finalists list.

In a Twitter post, the model whose vitiligo has inspired many to be comfortable with the condition, explained why she entered the competition again.

“I am truly grateful to be given this opportunity once again. I came back because I am resilient and I believe in second chances. Failure to me means trying again and this time with experience,” she wrote.

“I want women to know that they are strong, worthy and capable of anything they put their minds to. To never let any circumstances determine their future. I want to be the voice and give them hope. For every young girl/ women to see me and know that anything is possible.”
