"I have never in my life imagined coming home would be like this. It is indeed true that it takes a village to raise a child. Thank you kubantu bakuTsolo nase Mthatha for coming to see me at the airport. I'm forever greatful [sic]," Zozibini captioned a clip posted to Instagram.
A number of pictures of Zozibini's homecoming were also shared via the official Miss South Africa Instagram page. The organisation described the experience as "nothing short of incredible".
