When Julia Morley, President of Miss World, announced that Miss South Africa, Rolene Strauss, had won the Miss World Competition, it also had an impact on the Miss South Africa Organization. Like Miss World, Miss South Africa is a full-time job. As Strauss will be based in London for the year of her reign, first runner-up, Ziphozakhe Zokufa (23) has now been called upon to take over the title of Miss South Africa.
Zokufa was in Hong Kong when she heard the news and had to rush back to South Africa immediately. The 1.75m beauty was a hot favorite to win this year's Miss SA title (along with Strauss) and fans are delighted that Zokufa will also get the opportunity to reign. She will hold the title until 29 March when she will crown Miss South Africa 2015 at Sun City. Among her duties will be representing South Africa at the next Miss Universe Pageant on January 25 in Doral, Florida.
