B Behold the New Miss SA Sasha-Lee as Zozibini Tunzi losses her crown.
The Miss SA website clearly states that after winning another title, Zozibini Tunzi relinquishes her Miss South Africa title as she assumes the Miss Universe mantle and takes up residence in New York for the duration of her Miss Universe reign.
The first runner up Sasha-Lee was officially crowned on Wednesday during a swanky ceremony in Johannesburg. This comes as Zozibini is living a dream come true in the US after scooping the prestigious title in December 2019.
The new Miss South Sasha-Lee told TshisaLIVE she believed that taking over the crown had a lot to do with the stars aligning.
“ Sometimes it’s a case of destiny delayed and not destiny denied. I think I’ve come out of this process a lot stronger and through Miss World, definitely in a position where I am ready to step into the role as your Miss SA 2019,” she said
