Thulisile “Thuli” Madonsela 

“An inspirational leader who believes in the possibility of and is playing her part to build a more just world. Miss South Africa is a symbol of all the beauty that makes South Africa great. She inspires hope, goodness and valoura and spires to nourish those around her and blooms like a rose amidst the thorns. She has the ability to turn graves into gardens. I am looking for a virtuous woman who walks tall in her covenant blessings. A woman on an urgent mission. A woman who is not confined to one particular role but demonstrates the capacity to live a life filled with purpose.”

“I will be looking for someone who has a unique voice and has a strong conviction in who they are and what they stand for. These are usually the people who know how to use their platform to contribute positively to humanity. They must also be sincere in their approach to the crown because this says a lot about who they will be as the reigning queen.”

Rolene Strauss

“A Miss South Africa to me is a well-rounded, beautiful (of course) and balanced woman. Someone who can be vulnerable, yet strong; someone who is both real and aspirational; a woman who is content with who she is yet striving to be the best version of herself; and someone who can represent our beautiful country internationally! I have judged the Miss South Africa and Miss World pageant finales in 2018. My judging criteria mainly stay the same but I get more particular regarding certain criteria as I become older and get a more objective view of what truly is important, not only in pageantry but in life in general.”

Devi Sankaree Govender

“Intelligence. Frankness. Boldness. A strong drive to bring about social change. Agility and a sharp sense of humour!”

Suzette van der Merwe 

Miss universe South Africa 2022 judges

“Similar to our national sports teams and stars, Miss South Africa contributes to nation-building and pride, especially when they excel internationally and hold the South African flag high. I’ll be looking for that unique spark and qualities that will not only inspire the hearts of the people of our nation but a winner who will represent us on the world stage. The ideal candidate has a presence, is authentic, articulate and has a “servant attitude”. She is confident, hardworking and ambitious with a clear vision of the goals she wants to achieve and the legacy she wants to be remembered for.”

Thando Thabethe
