Johannesburg | Natasha Joubert was the highlight of the evening last night following being crowned the new Miss South Africa. The Democratic Alliance (DA) took to their social media platforms to extend their congratulations to the newly crowned beauty queen. However, this sparked controversy and accusations of racial bias.
It did end well for the Blues. Tweeps swiftly pointed out that this was the first instance of the DA congratulating a Miss South Africa winner, specifically Natasha Joubert. This fueled ongoing allegations that the DA exhibits pro-white tendencies.
Twitter users shared screenshots from searches within the DA’s accounts, utilizing keywords like ‘Zozibini,’ ‘Miss SA,’ ‘Miss World,’ and ‘Miss Universe.’ The search results revealed no prior instances of congratulatory messages, highlighting that the DA had not acknowledged any previous beauty pageant winners. This further ignited discussions about the party’s stance and intentions, amidst persisting allegations of bias.
Miss South Africa 2023 was crowned at SunBet Arena, Time Square on Sunday and Natasha Joubert was crowned Miss South Africa 2023.
