Eastern Cape Miss SA finalists meet Mayor Jordaan

MARCH 1, 2016

"You are already winners,” said Executive Mayor Dr Danny Jordaan to bubbly Eastern Cape Miss SA finalists, Luyolo Mngonyama and Mikaela Oosthuizen, during a quick visit at his office at the Port Elizabeth City Hall on Monday.

Mngonyama and Oosthuizen, both Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) students, reached the final twelve in the tough competition where the nation’s fairest compete for the top spot.  They now stand a chance to scoop the coveted crown on 19 March.

"We wish you both well and if one of you wins we will have a parade on the square to celebrate the victory.

"You must show others that there is no contradiction between beauty and brains. That is why you should continue with your academic achievements as well,” he said.

Mngonyama is a BA student majoring in Psychology and Sociology and Oosthuizen is a BA student in Media Communication and Culture.

Both ladies enjoyed meeting our first citizen with Mngonyama saying she was worried that she might swallow her words as it is a great privilege to meet the Mayor.

Oosthuizen described the experience as a nice opportunity to touch base and appreciated the encouraging words and positive feedback from the Mayor.
