Miss South Africa Lalela Mswane has been selected to represent South Africa at the 13th Miss International pageant to be held in Poland in July, the miss South Africa organization announced on February 15.This is the second time South Africa has sent representatives to the international event.However, the announcement was immediately criticised by many social media users.As the Miss South Africa pageant was announced earlier, the top three winners of Miss South Africa 2021 will represent their country at Miss Universe, Miss World and Miss Transnational.Laila Mswan won the Miss South Africa 2021 title and has already completed her mission by competing in the Miss Universe 2021 competition.The remaining two competitions should be represented by Miss South Africa 2021 runner-up Moratvi Masima and runner-up Zimi Mabonzi respectively as agreed.Stephanie Weil, chief executive officer of the Miss South Africa pageant organization, said the choice to have a reigning queen compete in more than one international competition is nothing new.Other former Miss South Africa contestants who have represented South Africa in more than one international pageant include Joanne Strauss, Megan Coleman, Tansey Coetzee, Bokang Montjane, Marilyn Ramos and most recently NtandoyenkosiKunene.In response, Miss South Africa 2021 runner-up Moratvi Masima has removed the title “Miss South Africa 2021 Runner-up” from her social media profile.One more match for Lila, and she’s sure to edge out the second and third places.It is feared that the runners-up and third-place finishers will not represent South Africa on the international stage.That’s because the next Miss World competition, the 71st, is a long way off (the 70th edition is still to come, with the final on March 16, represented by Miss South Africa 2020 winner Shudufazo Musida).Laila Mswang, 25, was born in Richards Bay, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.Her father is a former South African foreign minister.Leila studied at the University of Pretoria and later obtained a Bachelor of Laws degree.She is a professional model signed to South African modeling agency Alushi Models.She was crowned Miss South Africa in Cape Town on 16 October 2021.And represented South Africa in the 70th Miss Universe pageant.The size and influence of Miss International is nothing compared to that of Miss Universe.Laila Mswan became a global celebrity after finishing third in the Miss Universe pageant.It would be a travesty if she went into another little competition and didn’t win the championship.But miss International, the organizers of the competition, welcomed it.Ultimately, the pressure falls on the judges of the Miss Transnational competition.Miss South Africa is also under pressure.But there is reason to believe that she is ready, whether she succeeds or fails.
