Miss South Africa 2020 will be crowned at The Table Bay hotel in an entertainment-packed event on Saturday, October 24, from 17h00.
Due to her remarkable work with UNHCR Africa, Mbatha was appointed as a UNHCR Global Goodwill Ambassador in January 2019.
A household name not just in South Africa, but on the continent as a whole, Mbatha – who has a BCom accounting degree from the University of Cape Town – moved to Los Angeles last year to expand her international career.
Mbatha reveals that she has always been a huge fan of the Miss South Africa pageant and so it is a dream come true to host this year’s show: “What the pageant has done in being a reflection of beauty, depth and power, not only for South African women but women all over the world, is something I truly admire.”
Stephanie Weil, CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation said, “It is a coup for Miss South Africa to have Nomzamo host the pageant. We are passionate about celebrating young women and believe that Nomzamo, with all she has achieved, is a perfect fit to host the pageant and an inspiration for all.”
Miss South Africa 2020 will take home a package of prizes and sponsorships worth in excess of R3 million.
