Newly crowned Miss South Africa Ndavi Nokeri received the keys to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan on Sunday 14 August, which she will drive during her reign as Miss SA.
NDAVI NOKERI CROWNED MISS SA 2022
Ndavi Nokeri from Limpopo was crowned Miss South Africa 2022 at the pageant finals held at the SunBet Arena in Time Square, Pretoria on Saturday 13 August. Second place goes to Ayanda Thabete.
This year, there are no longer two second places, but only two best ones. Therefore, Miss SA 2022 will compete in all three international pageants. If she is unable to do so, her role will be taken over by the runner-up.
Miss SA will now also allow mothers and married women to compete. Ndavi was a fan favorite – a 23-year-old beauty from Tzaneen in Limpopo. She holds a BCom in Investment Management from the University of Pretoria and currently works for an asset management firm. Read our live blog about the contest here.
