Miss South Africa: ‘God’s timing is perfect’


    JOHANNESBURG – “God’s timing is perfect. He is never early, he is never late, he is always on time”.

    These are the words of newly crowned Miss SA, Zozibini Tunzi two years ago, when she lost out on a spot in the top twelve in the beauty pageant.

    Reflecting on her misfortune at the time, she took to Facebook.

    “I am grateful for all the people that I have met and the lives that I have touched. Some of the judges pulled me aside and told me I was absolutely outstanding throughout my journey, I stood there, looked at them and thought ‘then why am I not in the top 12?’.

    “Then again I thought to myself ‘God’s timing is perfect’. He is never early, he is never late, he is always on time.

    “I did an absolutely amazing job in my eyes and in the eyes of others but something with my creator just didn’t click, this wasn’t it; at least not last night. So I sit here patiently, rest assured that what is mine will find me and surely then his will will be done”.

    Tunzi was crowned 61st Miss SA on Friday night on Women’s Day at Time Square in Pretoria.

    She beat 15 other contestants from across the country, walking away with R3-million prize package.
