Miss South Africa, Zozibini Tunzi, welcomed home our triumphant Springbok Rugby World champions at OR Tambo Airport this afternoon with excitement that matched the joyful mood of the country.
As she prepares to represent South Africa at the Miss Universe pageant, held in December in Atlanta, Zozi said she was inspired by the “astonishing commitment of the team to those of us back here, at home, who were watching their every move with bated breath.”
She was motivated by the winning speech given by the captain, Siya Kolisi – they both grew up in rural Eastern Cape. “He said we can achieve anything if we work together. It’s the kind of commitment I want to take with me when I represent South Africa at Miss Universe,”.
