SA hosts Miss Heritage Global contention beyond rise

55 beauty queens worldwide will gather in SA for this year’s (MHG) tournament next month.

Miss Heritage SA 28-year-old will personify SA and Kalahari Waterfront will host it in Thohoyandou.

According to the tournament CEO, Mbofholowo Mbodi, a group of men formed MHG in 2013 to celebrate different cultures of the world while also showing the beauty of these ladies.

“This global pageant is not solely based on beauty but has a lot to do with advocacy work for culture, for women, how they represent their heritage and culture, and also the work they do for their respective communities. The competition is beyond the ramp,” she said.

The 55 ladies will be involved in a 14-day boot camp week where they will be removed daily leaving 45 ladies to fight for the prize.

Mbodi said leading up to MHG on September 24, there will be social development programs in different towns in Limpopo

“The purpose of these smaller yet significant activities is to get local businesses to showcase their offerings to the global market that will be present. It is for them to advertise what Limpopo can offer and from a tourism perspective, expose the world to the quality infrastructure that exists in this marginalized province,” she said.

“This entire competition is also meant to add to the social and economical advancement of any place that we host. It is Limpopo’s time to shine, moving away from the concrete jungle and the usual spots to stage a cultural competition in a place that is rich in culture.”

“Being Miss Heritage is more than just a beauty pageant, it’s about being an advocate for change. I get to do good work in society by spreading education around heritage and culture, and what it means to be a united society and representing the true essence of being African,” said Hlabisa.
