South African or Zimbabwean, Social Media Users Divided Over Nationality of Miss South Africa

South Africans over the years have developed zero tolerance for immigrants who exploit the system at the detriment of their own citizens and this is one of the factor fueling the agitation for the repatriation of Illegal immigrants back to their home country.

Just few days ago 23 year old Ndavi Nokeri emerged as the new Miss South Africa 2022 at the glittering pageant finale which was held at SunBet Arena, Time Square, Pretoria.

While several persons around the world were busy congratulating beautiful Ndavi for her emergence as the newest crowned Miss South Africa, others were busy carrying out investigations on her name Ndavi Nokeri to ascertain if she's truly South African.

Some twitter users found her name very strange to any South African tribe and they quickly attributed her nationality to Zimbabwe. Some social media users believed that Miss SA 2022 Ndavi Nokeri is Zimbabwean pretending to be South African.

However, contrary to people's opinion, Ndavi Nokeri is pure South African. She was born and raised in Tzaneen, Limpopo, South Africa.

During her acceptance speech, Ndavi Nokeri affirmed that she hails from Limpopo.

In her words, she said:

“For a girl from Gabaza to be seen, embraced and chosen to represent her country is a groundbreaking moment. A moment that reaffirms that our dreams are valid, regardless of where we come from.”

“I am grateful for the women who have gone before me who broke the glass ceiling so I could stand here today empowered, fulfilled and ready to proudly raise the South African flag high everywhere I go and to shine the light of hope to all South Africans,” she said.

The beauty queen is also said to be very fluent in Afrikaans, Sepedi, Xitsonga and English.

I believe this article settles whatever argument people had in the past with respect to Ndavi Nokeri's nationality.
