While we're on lockdown, many celebrities have been urging people to take the necessary precautions during the global pandemic.

The Top 12 Miss South Africa contestants of 2015 are also playing their part as they reunited on social media on Tuesday afternoon.

Miss South Africa 2015 Liesl Laurie, first princess Refilwe Mthimunye, second princess Ntsiki Mkhize, Busi Rambuda, Chanelle Hammond, Danelle de Wet, Taryn Morris, Kim Wentzel, Nicole Lee Lamberts, Sihle Manasseh-Makhanya, Shané Naidoo and Gugulethu Banda came together on Instagram to raise awareness of the importance of staying at home during the lockdown.

In the pictures, the ladies can be seen holding up signs that read, “Stay home for the people you love. Be kind. Wash your hands. Let’s flatten the curve!”


Shané Naidoo revealed she and the former contestants have supported one another over the years, and she hopes to reunite with the ladies after the lockdown.

“We’ve been through so much together over the years. From competing in Miss SA, supporting each other through weddings, babies, girls nights, milestones, highs and lows, and now sticking together through a whole global pandemic!” Shané wrote.

Danelle de Wet also expressed how she finds the Top 12 Miss SA 2015 contestants to be a “strong and uplifting sisterhood.”

The former beauty queens’ reunion is a testament that indeed we are stronger together.
