Cape Town - Zozibini Tunzi has won Miss South Africa but she can’t believe it!

Speaking to YOU just after winning Miss SA crown, the 25-year-old revealed that she didn’t expect to win.

“It actually hasn’t sunk in at the moment, I think I’ll believe it first thing tomorrow morning,” Zozibini said.

“You want to do good but then when it actually happens you come crashing and it’s overwhelming but it’s beautiful overwhelming.”

The beaut, who’s from the Eastern Cape, went on to say that she did not expect to win the Miss SA title.

“There were 15 other amazing girls. I just remember stepping out of the flight and meeting the first set of girls and I thought ‘Oh my goodness this is going to be a hectic year because everyone of them was intelligent in their own right and I didn’t know that I would win’.”

Zozibini revealed that she is looking forward to meeting with different South African people and touching as many lives as possible.

“I hope to use this platform to spread positivity and do good.”


Her proud dad, Lungisa Tunzi (55), revealed that he’s stunned at his daughter’s achievement.

“I am absolutely speechless,” Mr Tunzi said. “It’s unbelievable. You know a rural boy like myself coming from the village of uTsolo in the Eastern Cape, having a child that is Miss South Africa is amazing.
