Miss World organizers have announced a new date for the pageant finale and coronation after postponing weeks ago due to the safety of contestants and other staff.
The event which ought to take place on 17th December 2021 was postponed due to the surge in the number of positive cases of the virus; hence, Miss South Africa representative, Shudufhadzo Musida returned home.
“I just wanted to let you know that I’m at home, here in South Africa, safe and very blessed. I just wanted to thank the Miss World Organisation for such a beautiful time in Puerto Rico. Unfortunately, the pageant had to be postponed and that’s for a good reason because health comes first, and they protected us and treated us so beautifully during our stay in Puerto Rico. So, I just want to say thank you to the Miss World Organisation,” she said.
However, the new date is 16th March 2022 and it will be hosted in Puerto Rico.
The President of the organisation, Julia Morley expressed gratitude for the support from the people.
“We are so excited that we are staying in Puerto Rico to crown the new Miss World! We have been overwhelmed by the support of the people here! The countdown and final planning has begun. Our team is thrilled that we will show all the wonders that Puerto Rico has to offer as a premier tourism destination to the entire world. We love Puerto Rico,” she said.
