West Rand beauties in the race for the prestigious Mrs SA title

According to the organisers, the ideal Mrs South Africa is smart, ambitious and cares about her family and community.

Out of a record number of entries for the Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa competition, five of the West Rand’s beauties have been named as top semi-finalists for 2020.

Their names were announced after a successful national live casting at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre on 28 February.

Ruimsig residents Marika Opperman and Paula Msiza are among the beautiful, sophisticated married women from all over South Africa who will be embarking on a journey that prides itself on its reputation for women empowerment.

“As a relatable and empowered woman, I wish to prove that you can overcome anything.

“I would like to use the Mrs SA platform to give a voice to women and empower them through the Women4Women Foundation, and create awareness that you can change your life and become the mother, wife, and boss lady you always dreamt of being,” said Marika.

Kekeletso Moeca from Weltevreden Park and Nthabiseng Mohane from Wilgeheuwel are among the West Rand beauties, while Janine Haribhai from Bergbron joins the fantastic five to complete a fine local selection.

Kekeletso said, “As a modern family, business and career woman on a journey to be the best version of myself, I feel extremely honoured to have been chosen to be part of this incredible programme.

“I entered the Tammy Taylor Mrs South Africa pageant to propel me in the right direction whilst ensuring that I’m also able to give back to the community.

“As a wife to an inspirational man and a mother to two amazing little girls, I feel it is my duty to go on a growth journey by stepping out of my comfort zone.”

The semi-finalists from all over the country have already attended an empowerment workshop at Emperors Palace, to prepare them for the journey ahead.

The semi-finalists from all over the country have already attended an empowerment workshop at Emperors Palace, to prepare them for the journey ahead.

They will embark on a four-months journey during which they will undergo mentorship programmes, raise funds for the non-profit organisation Women4Women South Africa, and do interviews.

“Being selected as a semi-finalist is an honour and a reminder of the responsibility that I have to myself and the community around me.

“We must know that we can make a difference and our lives do matter. I hope to meet people from different walks of life, and be positively influenced and inspired by their journey.

“I am looking forward to learning more about myself and my surroundings, and be moved to action by the pains we suffer as individuals and society, all the while celebrating the beautiful, rich culture that we are blessed with as a nation,” added Paula.

Only 25 women will be selected to continue the journey as finalists. They will be announced at the annual Charity Ball at Emperors Palace on 26 June.

Mrs South Africa is not the typical beauty pageant as it offers married South African women who have real-life careers, families, and hobbies the chance to compete for the prestigious title of Mrs South Africa.

“The reason why I entered this competition is to be the voice for those whose homes have been repossessed, tackle the unemployment crisis due to being blacklisted from the poor economic platform, and those who are afraid to speak their heart,” commented Janine.

Glamour and sophistication are part of the Mrs South Africa criteria, but the women who enter and win all have heart-warming relatable stories.

According to the organisers, the ideal Mrs South Africa is smart, ambitious and cares about her family and community.

“I am one of the lucky and blessed women who have been selected. This is just the beginning.

“It is my opportunity to give back and change the world, or make an impact,” concluded Nthabiseng
