You Are Invited | Miss Vilakazi Street 2016


A week ago my sister and I plus a couple of friends attended the launch of Miss Vilakazi Street 2016 and it being the first official event as a blogger from around Soweto I must say *honoured*.   

Vilakazi Street in Orlando West (Soweto) is a place of great heritage in South Africa, as it is where Hector Pieterson was shot in 1976 during the Soweto uprising as a result of resistance to the laws of apartheid. It is also the only road in the world to birth two Nobel Peace prize winners such as Desmond Tutu and the late father of our nation Nelson Mandela. Due to the rich history of the Vilakazi Street, it is now a very popular tourist attraction heritage destination.

Miss Vilakazi Street is the brain child of Former Miss Soweto Lungile Buhale, The pageant launched this year aims to groom and cultivate young women. The core and central aspects of the pageant are to harness five important female traits which include; Education, Wellbeing, Health, Beauty and Community humanity.
