23 year old Liesl Laurie from Eldorado Park was crowned Miss South Africa 2015 at the conclusion of a glittering event in Sun City last night. The new Miss South Africa will spend the next year of her life traveling around South Africa on behalf of the Miss SA Organisation. She will also represent her country at Miss World and Miss Universe. Laurie was crowned by outgoing Miss SA, Ziphozakhe Zokufa. The reigning Miss World, South Africa's very own Rolene Strauss was a special guest at the event.
The first runner-up was Refilwe Mthimunye and the second runner-up was Ntsiki Mkhize. Mthimunye might be called upon to fill in for the new Miss SA should she be unable to fulfill any of her duties. The top 5 were completed by Sihle Makhanya and Nicole Lee Lamberts.
Well done to Liesl Laurie. I know this will change her life for the better. A very special congratulations to Werner Wessels, who now has his third Miss SA winner!
