Miss South Africa officials have revealed the women who will be chasing the 2023 crown.  

The top 12 finalists were unveiled on Thursday night. 

KwaZulu-Natal's Angie Mkwanazi, Sibusisiwe Zwane, Thandolwenkosi Hadebe, and Anelisa Nxele made it to the 'top 30' stage of the competition but were cut in the latest round - which included public votes. 

This means Miss South Africa 2023 will not be a KZN beauty. The last woman to win the pageant from the province was Richards Bay's Lalela Mswane

The Miss SA 2021 winner went on to be crowned Miss Supranational 2022

She was named runner-up at Miss SA 2020, and went on to represent the country at Miss Universe
