Miss SA organisation accused of “disregarding” Sasha-Lee Olivier as Zozibini Tunzi’s successor

The Miss South Africa (SA) organisation has been accused of “disregarding” Sasha-Lee Olivier as Zozibini Tunzi’s successor, following the latter’s crowning as Miss Universe in December 2019.

Sasha-Lee Olivier is the reigning Miss South Africa, and people took to Twitter to reiterate that point on Thursday, 4 June 2020, as many still consider Miss Universe, Zozibini Tunzi, as the titleholder. This comes shortly after the closure of this year’s entries.

With Zozibini being featured in the Miss SA 2020 advert, and most of the promotional activity, many have accused the organisation of disregarding Sasha-Lee’s reign, further calling it “rude” and “unfair.” Twitter users have also suggested that the organisation is partly responsible for South Africans not considering Sasha-Lee as the titleholder because of a lack of promotion in her name.

The sentiments were further fuelled by popular Twitter personality, Koshiek Karan, who suggested that there is no need for the pageant this year.
