Johannesburg – Beauty queens from around the world will gather in Kwa Zulu-Natal this year as the Mrs Universe pageant makes its way to the African continent for the first time. 

The coastal province has clinched the rights to host the 40th annual Mrs Universe pageant which will see 84 countries jetting in to take part in the World Final at People’s Park, Moses Mabhida Stadium on 2 September 2017. 

In keeping with the theme, Empowering Women. Creating Change, the pageant recognises married woman between 25 and 45 who are doing amazing work to uplift their local communities.
