The announcement was made on Tuesday via the organisation’s social media pages.
Thabethe, who hails from Pietermaritzburg, was a crowd favourite during the Miss SA Pageant, having won the People’s Choice vote.
The 23-year-old beauty is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Lalela Mswane, the reigning Miss Supranational who was also the Miss SA 2021 winner.
Thabethe expressed her excitement in a video posted on social media, saying, “I’m so excited. Please do join me for my journey. I can’t wait to share everything.”
Chance for Ayanda Thabethe?
