A KwaZulu-Natal civil engineering student gets to be Miss South Africa for a day.

Sphokuhle Mafuleka‚ 22‚ of Hlabisa‚ is spending Saturday at the Vodacom Durban July alongside reigning Miss South Africa Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters.

Mafuleka had been following the Miss South Africa social media pages when she came across the competition where she had to describe herself in three words in a video.

The words “Inspirational‚ Warrior and Smiley” earned her the crown for the day.

“I love modelling and always dreamt of being Miss South Africa. I was overwhelmed with joy when I was told I get to spend the day with one of the greatest persons in South Africa.

“I get to wear a fancy designer dress and feel like a queen and hear from Demi-Leigh how she made to be in the top 12‚ what inspired her to enter the competition and her plans during her reign‚” said Mafuleka.

Mafuleka‚ who has participated in a few local pageants where she was crowned queen or made runner-up‚ said she plans on entering Miss South Africa this year.
