Nompumelelo Maduna Returns to Miss SA 2024 with Empowered Purpose

Driven by her experience with Zozibini Tunzi, Nompumelelo Maduna seeks to leave a lasting impact on the Miss South Africa stage. Having competed in 2019, Maduna has returned to the competition with newfound determination and a mission to empower women.

Inspiration and Growth

The presence of Zozibini Tunzi, Miss South Africa 2019, left an enduring mark on Nompumelelo Maduna. Tunzi’s poise and charisma inspired Maduna to pursue her own dream of wearing the crown.

Over the past five years, Maduna has dedicated herself to personal growth and community involvement. She graduated with a master’s degree in marketing and actively mentored young women, guiding them towards higher education and career opportunities. This experience has fueled Maduna’s desire to make a positive change in society.

A Deeper Purpose

“This time around, I really know who I am,” Maduna says. She aims to showcase her authentic self and use her platform to empower young women in South Africa. Inspired by Bokang Montjane, Miss South Africa 2010, Maduna believes in the transformational power of giving back.

Evolution of Miss SA

Maduna also recognizes the positive evolution of the Miss South Africa Organization. By embracing diversity and promoting impact-driven initiatives, the organization has shattered traditional pageant stereotypes. Maduna is grateful to be part of this forward-looking platform.

Personal Growth and Authenticity

Maduna’s journey over the past five years has been one of significant personal growth. She has embraced her vulnerability and hopes to inspire others to do the same.

“I want to show my true self, including my fears and dreams,” she says. “I believe that by being authentic, we can connect with others and make a real difference.”

Community Engagement and Hope

Maduna wants to continue working closely with young women, providing them with access to education, career opportunities, and the confidence to pursue their aspirations.

She remains close with her fellow 2019 Top 35 contestant, Zanele Phakathi, and hopes Phakathi will consider re-entering the competition. Maduna’s strong bonds underscore the power of community and the hope she has for the future of South Africa’s young women.
