Miss South Africa organization, through their official social media, announced the appointment of Ayanda Thabethe as the new Miss Supranational South Africa 2023. Miss South Africa 2022 first runner-up Ayanda Thabethe will now represent South Africa at Miss Supranational 2023.

Ayanda Thabethe is 23 years of age. She is an entrepreneur and a model who hails from Pietermaritzburg. The stunning beauty is pursuing a degree in dietetics and human nutrition from the University of KwaZulu-Natal.



Ayanda’s advocacy, ‘Project Khulisa’, aims to improve the future of all South Africans through nutritional intervention and innovation by mobilizing food solutions through initiatives such as community vegetable gardens, food parcels, and education about diet.

On talking about her project, Ayanda wrote, “After visiting a KZN orphanage, I was surprised at how little consideration is taken by those preparing and funding the meals into providing the children with nutrient-dense meals as most of their meals are supplied by their schools during the day.”



"I hope to transform the standard of food given to children in schools under the National School Nutrition Programme as well as start a much-needed conversation about following a healthy diet and the importance of it. I’ll be getting my hands dirty starting up these gardens while also posting short videos on all aspects of healthy living from the do’s and don’ts to practical examples," she added.

Ayanda will now prepare to represent South Africa at Miss Supranational 2023 in Poland this July and will try to achieve a back-to-back win after Lalela Mswane won Miss Supranational 2022 crown last year.
