Miss South Africa 2009 Nicole Flint graciously handed over her crown to 24-year-old Bokang Montjane, who was announced as Miss South Africa 2010 at a glittering event held at Sun City over the weekend.
Congrats Bokang – you are beautiful!
your comment just smells of jealousy. If you happen to look @ Bokangs profile you will notice that she has been in the industry for eons and has proven to be worthy of the title. She is actually a bright spark but then again i wouldnt expect an imbecile like you to notice.
Get over yourself man,where you driving that bus?you seriously have a problem!
Point of correction.
Bokang’s father is not a politicain and had never been associated himself to any political party. Come on say something else if you fail to accept that she deserve it.
People. Stop being jelous, you will never succed inl ife.
Congragulations girl. You’ve made your family proud.
if you knew Bokang and her history inpegants then you woudl see that your ocmment is full of holes. this lady wins every pegant that she enters… not only is she a beauty but a brain as well. she is a qualified public relations practitioner. if you were not drivign one of those buses, please shut up…as for her father being a politician…that has nothing with her being Miss SA… i am a daughter of a politician and like many whose fathers are, i am where i am becuase of merit and my own efforts…Bokang too…..insulting you woudl be a waste of time… Bokang is a well groomed young lady whose taklents and education have gotten her to where she is. let her be.
all the best to her…
Bokang is too old for this crown anyhow she just won because THEY just want a black Miss SA the first princess deserves that crown Bokang is not Miss World and Miss Universe product at all she is not gonna stand a chance at all. she will be 25 next year competing with 18 years old ladies i mean really now Miss World owner doesn’t like old ladies at all it will be just waste of money to send her to represent SA. SHE IS NOT EVEN PRETTY. AM black myself but judges should not look at the colour at all LET THE BEST LADY TAKE THE CROWN. disseminated
Tjo Mama Juju did you say beautiful? she cant even close her mouth hahahaha
Disapointing! of all the beautiful girls this year they choose the least attractive of them all.
Well done though on the 1st and 2nd princesses.They are beautiful.
Miss BEE SA 2010= Bokang, it’s a beauty pageant and not a heart or brain surgery. otherwise what’s the point? size 40s can also enter cause it’s not about looks then Bokang proved it.
Bokang wa rena, Limpopo le thakgetse ka moka ga lona…o lekgarebe le le botse e le ruri. Re sa emetse tse di kgolo go tswa go wena.
They couldnt have made a better choice, You’ll be the first 25 year old to win Miss World and Miss Universe. We cant wait
We love you,
I personally know Bokang we where class mates at uj and trust me if you could meet her you would swallow all those nasty things you are saying about her , although she can be irritating sometimes with her loudness i still love her , well done girl you made Limpopo proud!
Well done Bokang! U made South Africa proud! Hope you have a blessed festive season! May God bless you!!!
Ru guys jealous coz its a black beautiful woman?
Lorenzo you will wait and wait she is not even gonna be placed at all you wont even see her on stage at the Miss WORLD and Miss Universe shame she will be backstage crying wishing she was in Sun City
did you guys saw the first princess wow wow that is Miss World hopeful unfortunately judges decided somehow Y?
GAVIN please wait you cant say that now she still has to prove that she deserves that crown. which i don’t believe i nearly died yesterday nite whoooooooo SA miracles do happen. anyhow lets wait and c this buT I JUST C same situation like that of Thuli Sithole
did not watch the show, but i am glad Bokang won.
she sounds very inteligent and i am very happy for her.
Well done Bokang! A much deserved title indeed. Yesterday was a proud moment for me and millions of others! I don’t see who else could have been crowned with that title but Bokang Montjane.
Oupa, I know Bokang personally and her father is DEFINITELY NOT a polotician. Not everything that is from Limpopo has a political stamp on it, so get yo facts STRAIGHT before commenting, @Disappointed!
Stop being so paranoid.You know deep inside that Black is Beautiful , and so is Bokang.At least after such many yearz, we are now having a beautiful Miss S.A.. ..Damn we have being waiting for such a long time to see such a Queen in many ages.
You Racist, get over yourself.
Bokang!i have learned tht dogs only bucks at a car that moving, as a young black woman i was in tears when to took your crown, you deserve it more than any1, my the good God be with you
im so proud of you im sure 90% of our decent ,intelectual citizen will agree wih me
you know what GET A LIFE,
LISTEN,YOU MUST NEVER JUDGE,CAUSE YOU NOT PERFECT,AND WE WERE ALL CREATED BY GOD…DINT YOUR MUM TEACH YOU THAT
Always remember that 80% of our population is Black so it figures a black might win any competition (80-20 rule). In this case, the judges decided Bokang was the winner according to their judging criteria and we should all say ‘Well done, Bokgang’. Whether she will at least get in to the Top 10 of the Miss World contest like Nicole did remains to be seen.
I’m scared come Miss Universe…
Either way, congratulations. I guess its up to you now to prove me and others wrong. Simply because I do not think you’ll make it on the international stage. Just being REAL.
Once again, congratz, have a good time representing the ladies of SA…
Wow bokang deserve to win she was the most intelligent ,outspoken that what we wont
so she can represente the worl .did u know that lady from nigeria that won miss world in 2001? so we need a africain to win now so you jeaulous bimbo shut up . beautiful come with a brains you can be beutifu and when you open your mouth it a disaster this is not modelling context where you just wear a clothes not opening your mouth ,you kow why they have question during the pageat ? ;;;;;; jeaulous bimbo …………..
u guys are just clueless haters ,ask ppl who enters pageants they will tell you she deserved it she has the full package now stop hating and appreciate black beauty!
How can any human post such horrible comments about a person? There were many beautiful and intelligent ladies but Bokang won because of her intelligence, humility, grace and beauty as a person. Get off the race boat, that mentality should have ended in 1994, everyone got a fair opportunity. Such jealousy and close mindedness proves that you are not worthy of even commenting on who ’should have’ won, because it is clearly above your level of empathy and intelligence.
Well done Bokang, may you have a prosperous journey*
Most of this blog sites serves as a refuge for former and present racists who used to have
Their racists idealogies well expressed by the former nats newspapers like the citizen.to call a black child who has just won miss RSA a monkey is pure racist and inhumane.it is shocking that the editors of our respectable newspapers have allowed the previously advantaged and racist to use their online blog space as a platform to express and cultivate african persimism
.The other problem with us blacks is our lack of unity and inability to stand up and reaffirm ourselves,we are constantly sucking up to the grandchild of the settler,we have legitimised this occupiers with a banana reconcilliation
And still allow them a space to think that they are superior in thoughts,whites are so full of themselves and preoccupyed with a delusions of grandiose that constantly embue them with notions that they are superior to the natives in work ethics and skills.
They are so used to having blacks as maids that black proffesionals always struggle to convince their mentally retarded white juniors that they are capable of running the show.
.Our inferiority complex has not helped the situation,most black workers will never take an instruction seriously unless it comes from a pale face,if their black senior orders them around they feel entitled to mumble and retaliate but when a farm reared white junior manager speak they wag their tales and run around like a dog after its master
If you know her – then you know that she was dethroned in 2007 for REFUSING to work for Miss Earth SA. From what I hear, she is lazy assed girl who is just after the glory! Clearly the Miss SA organisors did not do a background check.
I think that the race card will always be pulled in situations like this. I happen to know a thing or two about this girl’s work ethic and it has NOTHING to do with the colour of her skin.
In 2007 she was crowned Miss Earth South Africa. Later during her reign she was de-throned. This means that she had her title taken away from her. The fact that she STILL has it on her resume – well that is still questionable.
The reason why she was dethroned, was because she wrecked a sponsors car, and she refused to do the work she was obligated to do for Miss Earth SA. How do I know this, I took the time to call them and get the information.
So no… I do not think she is UGLY, I DO NOT think she is stupid. Quite the opposite in fact. I do think that she lacks WORK ETHIC and that she has NO RESPECT and I do think that she is a GLORY GRABBER. And I do not want someone like that representing me as a country ambassador. I think that a person like that is a POOR role model, and SHAME on the organisors of Miss South Africa for not doing a background/reference check on her.
KYLE we are in charge wake up and smell the coffee
Dont ever compare the lady from NIGERIA with Bokang i remember that very well it was here in SA. the lady was just 18 and beautiful not 25. Julia owner of Miss World is not even gonna look at her am so scared she is not gonna make it mmmm the Russians AND Indians Frances, Mexicans are gonna have fun couse they will be no competition from SA as always. if you compare Bokang with Tatum, Nicole and Tansy aah they should have used same judges. Basetsana and Jacquie Mofokeng always make good choices when they are judges they don’t look at the colour and all the ladies made it to the top 10 in both pageants. this is gonna be the same situation like that of Thuli Sithole. go to miss world web if you don’t believe what am talking about you will c that Bokang is not a good choice. Congradulations Bokang hope you will be kind enough and let the 1st princess go and represent at Miss Universe them you can try Miss World shame.
Why does everything have to be about the ANC and blame people on their parents’ success. This woman won because she deserves to WIN- She was Miss UJ, Miss Earth, Face of Soweto and she owns a very successful agency that aims at helping young children and other people get lessons on improving their modeling & confidence skills.Disgrace? You shold be ashamed of yourself, this woman worked hard!!! hard you stupid idiot! Whether or not busses were hired to get people to Sun City-she could have lost if she didnt work hard. Bokang was born for this, and I am confident that she can even do us good at the Miss Universe.Every year there are people like you that have negative opinions on the judging, if a white woman had won this- it would have been ” only white females won, these judges were racists”. were you even watching, did you hera how she perfeclty answered the quetion she was asked? you are a disgrace..sies!
SOLZA you are really really stupid..haha..”LET THE BEST LADY TAKE THE CROWN”- The best lady has taken the crown!!! who wants a black Miss SA? Y does it have to be about race? Miss World owner doesnt like old ladies? haha who said 24 is old? do you honestly think the organizers would let an “old lady” enter the competition if they thought that 24 is old? you are a disgrace to this Nation my dear. Waste of money–you have pride, and ohh..correction, SHE IS BEAUTYFUL, A LADY, INTELLIGENT, I was in the same class with her in 2007 at UJ. She has the most wonderful personality, doesnt look down on people, believes in GOD and goes to church, she is everything that Miss South Africa shold be!!!! CONGRADULATIONS MISS MONJANE, GOD bless you and Good Luck at Miss Universe!!
Listen, this pageant is supposed to be won by a woman who has beauty and brains at the same time. Bokang might have the brains, but I am sincerely sorry to say that she does not have the beauty. We have to compare her to previous crown holders, Bassie, Joanne, Jackie, Peggy-Sue…the list is endless. We just can’t compare her to those women who absolutely beautiful and graceful. And if she’s so brainy. Why does she only have a diploma at age 24? I’m not being negative, but I am just disappointed that the standard has dropped to this level. Growing up I used to look up to women who won the pageant, but there is nothing to look up to these days. There are many women in this country with both brains and beauty, I don’t know why we should behave as though there is some shortage.
Ah…Why the allegations…Were you there when they were putting pressure on the judges….Did you see that? Don’t be like that. Learn to appreciate! The young girl has worked her way up as she has the history in the industry! Just be happy for the young girl. She’s intelligent and beautiful!!!!
Fhasi nga Jelasi Fhasi, nwana wa vhathu odi nakela we! arali asa wina hu wine nnyi he!!!
Dear Erin, I am sure that the Miss South Africa organisors investigated the allegations that you have mentioned in your message. The pageant would not have allowed her to enter if they had any merit.
solza, i think u r not being fair to poor bokang! I think she is a beautiful intelligent young woman, and she deserved to win!! Infact the judges do not judge by the looks!,but by what comes out of the mouth>>>BRAINS, if u can just try to go back in time and check the previous miss-SA candidates black or white u will c wat i mean
Dear Proudly South African, Thank you for your comment. We do appreciate that you have your own opinion however in this case it has been removed as it has been considered abusive by several readers.

Dear Solza, Thank you for your comment. We do appreciate that you have your own opinion however in this case it has been removed as it has been considered abusive by several readers.
All comments that refer to human beings as ‘monkeys’ are removed from our site. The comment that you were responding to has been removed as well.
It is so sad that in this day and age that people still have to use the race card. We should be past that by now. Bokang won on the strength of her intelligence, opinions, her beauty and poise. Not all of the judges could be wrong in this regard. Can’t we just wish Bokang well and if she is successful in international pageants or not – then so be it. What will be will be… It is up to her how much effort she puts into the future – she is in charge and our opinions will mean nothing when she represents us in the international arena. Have a wonderful year Bokang – you obviously worked harder than the other contestants and deserve the title of Miss SA 2010.
Lets engage in a debate about the merits of the issue at hand and ignore people who want to make it a race thing.
its good to have an opinion as long its not insulting and i’m happy to see they are being removed, what i found funny though is that there are so many comments bout this girl yet she is called ugly, clueless and brainless by some. so i went went browse the last yr’s miss SA’s blog when she was crowned, not that i wanted to compare bt i couldnt believe there are only 2 comments there.
Bokang my dear, i dont know you, i only saw you on Sunday and i think yu and that Kwashimondo (sp) girl were b’utiful and you won, and i believe if there were many butiful and brainy girls out there as some ppl say, they would have entered the competition and if they didnt it means they want to be butiful and brainy else where, and if they entered i believe they would have won. good luck and all the best on the year ahead, you dont have to prove anything to anyone, you just do what you should do as Miss SA and more if you can, whether you make it or not to Miss Universe, yu wont be 1st to not make it. if you were chosen despite your age (which i still dont see anything wrong with the age bt others do) then it meant yu were great regardless cos am sure the judges knows evrythng about pageants so if they knew age is a problem they wouldnt even have chosen yu to get to top 5, be the proudest old pageant winner then. yes there will be 18 yr olds, which makes me wonder why they not Miss teens bt i also think judges know why they allow 18 year olds and 24/25 year olds to participate in the same pageant.
if i didnt want to be represented by you (as a country) i would go fly a kite, you deserve the tittle. well done girl
I think she is beautiful and she gave the best response to her question. The only worry I have is about her legs, she has one of the least attractive legs (they are thick) out of all the finalists. She also needs to work on her pose and walk. Well done though!
My comments were not insulting at all, you should have ready the email, I am simply protecting our Miss SA here- no human being should be called a monkey!
Dear Louise McAuliffe
Comments that should not be allowed her are comments from Astonished!
What if they are already monkeys? How should we refer to them ?
What does any of this have to do with BEE? Not all the successes of black people are through BEE. You are truly ignorant and bitter in this regard. Just say what you want to say, don’t hide behind the BEE card, because it isn’t going down here. What exactly are you trying to say about people who are a size 40, aren’t they beautiful? Bokang is not a size 40. She is a woman with curves, not fat, curves. Please flick through pictures of her body and then the previous Miss SAs before blowing your horn, there is nothing wrong with it.
Hi. I am a white South African guy and I think Bokang is very beautiful and speaks well too.
I think she will be a very good ambassador for us during her reign.
Its time everyone gets over their race issues and supports our wonderful country and everyone that represents it.
Well done and good luck.
Bottom line is———Miss sa needs both beauty and brains and sad to say she only has one of those criteria and it is definitely not the beauty .This is after all a beauty pageant or what?
SA needs a representative that looks good and is pleasing to the eye not someone we will be embarrassed by.After all we see the looks before we hear the intelligence.
It is dissapointing to hear such criticism abt this black beauty….not suprised though coz guys u are brain washed by western beauty.Waking up Bonang in the morning,u’ll see her beauty.Work on yo jealousy ppl. She deserve that crown,that why she got it.She has got it all to be our Miss SA.I’m proud of you gorgeous.Congrats…
Let the foolish haters hate.You rock woman.PROGRESS IS INEVITABLE.
Oh sh*t. Not another monkey.
When other pageant get the grown there is no critics it means bokang is special you go girl see you next year in miss universe top 5
SOLZA HAH HAH ……………………….. I AM FEELING SORRY FOR YOU .YOU ARE SO JEALOUS AND YOU ARE WAISTING YOUR TIME HEARTING BOKANG .BOKANG STILL YOUR MISS SOUTH AFRICA UNLESS YOU ARE NOT A SOUTH AFRICAIN .SO IF I WAS YOU ,I WOULD NOT HEART HER BECAUSE SHE IS HERE FOR A YEAR SWITY
To all those who are saying negative things about BEAUTIFUL BOKANG….Go to the nearest hell where you guyz belong… I wish to see all of you… maybe MAX THE GORILLA looks far much better than y’all…BOKANG GAL, YOU R BEAUTIFUL and you deserve that title… I wish these fools cud give it a rest…. whether you will be chosen to represent SA at the MISS WORLD peagant or not it wont do away with the fact that you are MISS SA 2010…. Go gal, yu’ve made us proud
Tansey was not a white girl and she was OH SO beautiful so it is not a race thing we have against Bokang..she just aint got the looks for miss sa ,actually she just aint got the looks PERIOD! ,
You guys are clueless about the pageant. I watched road to miss sa from the Beginning till the end. she was the best and no one was gonna beat her from those finalist. Some of them they could even answer simple quetion like acronym of AIDS.
“The mouth speaks what the heart is full of” To those that are trying to bring Bokang down,You will not succeed. If God is for her,who can be against her???
You are full of hatred and should do some serious self-introspection.I’m a proudly black south african female and will not tolerate any sub-human to call my fellow black people monkeys. Who do you think you are?
This is the kind of behaviour that gets me so upset,what was our former president Nelson Mandela fighting for? I just think SA has a very long way to go. I am extremely disappointed. Nonetheless,Bokang is your MISS SA 2010 and she is a very beautiful woman.If you have nothing good to say,then keep quiet. VIVA BOKANG!!!!
You are right, she made the whole Limpopo proud…………..
What will jelousy help you with???
Solza, whats with your negetive comment? if u cant appriciate, then keep it to urself, she is a beautiful black woman and we are proud of her, as for u on the other side i feel sorry for u as your jelous wont take you anywhere
Solza, was your sister on the competition??? i mean the stupid comment you give our princess sucks…. well if ur sister was on the competition i’m glad she ddnt win, coz only Bokang deserves this
Bokang, you have made the whole Limpopo n the rest of south africa proud, and please prove the haters wrong, that you can do this and you can represent us in the most amazing way……and simply close their big mouths shut……………..thanks for representing Limpopo gal!!!! we love you big time
There goes Miss SA competition down the sewer !!! It’s lost all It’s credibility. Just one more thing this black government has stuffed up.
@Trudy. Clearly you are interested. Why would you waste your time here if you weren’t? You are such an embarrassment for your race. Your stupidity is shining at its best right now. You are racist, why not start your own pageant called “Miss Any-Race-But-Black South Africa” ? And just stop hating on people who are not entwined in your racist mindset my gosh! What a joke!
I’m excpecting another crown on your head girl…
I know you, you’ve been criticised by the EXPERTS(who are now horribly ASHAMED), who cares about these ‘littlesperts’…
Millions, thus the majority are for you and behind you girl so KEEP GOING!!!
Bring the Crown home to SA!!! GOOD LUCK
dankie that shows her(solza) stupidity at its best level,she may have a diploma but that actualy proved that you dont need a degree and beauty in order to master things.otherwise the girl is not bad at all.”jealous makes u nasty and nasty makes u ugly,ugly makes u fat! lol”
shame chanty that’s exactly what happens when you look down on people,they succeed and you keep complaining while they are heading somwhere..complain as much as you want but she is MISS SA,LIKE IT OR NOT SWEETHEART.THAT GAL KNOWS HER STORY,SHE ANSWERS CONSTRUCTIVELY NOT AS THOUGH SHE CAME OUT OF THE BUSH LIKE SOME PEOPLE LOL
DANKIE AStonished,im about to enter lol,and the skinny girls may complain as much as they can
its see instead of saw@ solza.girl you dont even know how to spell,that simply says all about you.so your comments dont add value,you wouldnt have even made it to the entrance.
ai kante jealous ke ya eng tlheng! mxm SOLZA ,get a hobby dear
yooooo people r bitter out there!dnt u c you are wasting your time haters?u hv a very negative energy shame ..errr I better nt argue with you,u are just a crew with negative attitude i bet u havent achieved anything in ur lives mxm Bokang is a rock
u r my inspiration BK i love u n to Bokang’s fans big up ppl..n stop arguing wth d stupid monsters u gt important thngs to do..lets support our QUEEN oh yeah
Solza, my word!!! U’re disgusting to say the least! Are ur parents even proud to call u their daughter/son? U’re the ugliest person i’ve evr *** across, wow, if jealousy earned u money u’d be a billionair.
James ur comment touched me, thank u, we need more citizenz like u.
Neville, u & solza should get together & go for councelling. Get ur problems sorted out before it becomes incurable!! Wonder how old both of u are, infact no, Thank God i dont know both of you personally, i’d commit suicide if i did coz i’d be guilty of being assosiated with such…
