Miss Heritage Global 2022: Zimbabwe’s Eva Mzondiwa Leaves South Africa’s Zabelo Hlabisa In The Dust On Home Turf
Miss Heritage South Africa was beaten at home by Zimbabwe’s Eva Mzondiwa in the Miss Global Heritage 2022 pageant held in Limpopo on Saturday.
Haiti’s Abigail Pierre-Louis aged 25 was crowned Miss Heritage 2022 while Eva Mzondiwa was crowned first runner-up with South Africa’s Zabelo Hlabisa being crowned second runner-up.
Abigail Pierre-Louis said during her reign as Miss Heritage Global she will focus on empowering digital entrepreneurs. She said:
I am going to continue with a series of digital entrepreneur seminars. I have a digital marketing agency. I feel like if you don’t have a website or a place where you market your business you are left behind. We are starting a two-day seminar in December to help digital entrepreneurs with their businesses.
After being crowned Miss Heritage Global 2022, Abigail Pierre-Louis took to Instagram to express her gratitude for the support throughout her journey. She said:
Thank you, EVERYONE, for your love and support Thank you to my Haitian heritage for building me into the woman I am today to have the tenacity to persevere through anything life throws at us ✨🇭🇹 So excited to see the way we change the world with this crown.
After coming in as the first runner-up Eva Mzondiwa also took to Instagram to express her gratitude. Mzondiwa wrote:
With honour and pride, I raised my country’s flag. I’m so grateful for all the love and support❤
Zabelo Hlabisa also thanked South African’s for voting for her and ensuring she wins the Peoples Choice title. She wrote:
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you South Africa for voting. We won the Peoples choice Title. Ngiyabonga kakhulu . Angilutho ngaphandle kwenu.
Miss Heritage Global 2022 went smoothly despite a few incidents which raised eyebrows. One such incident is when Mpho Popps returned an envelope containing the names of the top 3 contestants back to the judges. Mpho said he was not happy with the envelope before he took it back to the adjudicators.
A few minutes later, they presented the envelope back to him and he announced the winner.
