Once more tonight when the 2022 Miss SA top 30 was reported, Machaba made the rundown.
"South Africa is a rainbow country loaded with variety. We have11 official dialects and I firmly accept that each voice and language matters," Machaba said.
"However my experience of being in the Miss South Africa Top 30 last year was stand-out, I endured nervousness because of reasoning I expected to talk, sound, or behave like the past sovereigns. I was failing to remember that we are different with sorcery inside us that the nation and the universe need to observe.
"We are brought into the world for a specific reason and the best way to release that light is by being our most genuine selves. I accept with this open door I will want to enable underestimated individuals and be an encouraging sign to little youngsters out there with the message that the second you are credible you are adjusted to your motivation throughout everyday life.
"Be what your identity is, gladly, and never attempt to diminish your light given what society anticipates. I'm saying I am a pleased, dark, God-filled trans lady from a little town - here to change the stories of my local area."

The Eastern Cape has three contenders, with Free State addressed by two. The North West and Limpopo each have one.
