Zozi also won a brand new car but she admitted that she does not have a driver's license yet.
"Unfortunately I do not have a driver's license yet but I am really excited about my new car." she said.
When asked if she would be keeping her hair short during her reign as Miss SA, she said: "I came here like this. I've worn my hair this way for two years now and plan to keep it that way."
