Johannesburg – The streets of Johannesburg
came alive on Thursday when Miss Universe, Zozibini Tunzi, made her way through
town on an open double-decker bus.
The beauty queen is currently on her
homecoming tour, with this being the first time that she is in South Africa
since winning the Miss Universe crown in December 2019.
Fans screamed with joy when they caught a
glimpse of Zozi passing by on the bus.
Speaking to the media, the 26-year-old said
that she could not wait to come home and see her fans in person.
"I've been away for such a while, and I
could feel the support of South Africans, obviously, on social media. But feeling
it in person is so much better."
She added: "I'm feeling very excited
to be home. I think I've been homesick for quite a while. People have been commenting on my social media saying that I'm glowing differently now that I'm home. Because my heart is in South Africa. My heart will always be in South Africa."
