Former Miss South Africa Ntandoyenkosi Kunene Mthethwa answers why she had to work after being crowned Miss SA 2016. October month marks a year since the beauty resigned as a private banker.
Taking to her Instagram page on Thursday, Ntandoyenkosi Mthethwa says in 2017 she worked for the regulatory board in the liquor and gambling industry as part of the public relations team.
“I was blessed to have had the most beautiful working environments, supportive employers and co-workers. I have met amazing people that I still think about today,” says Ntandoyenkosi Mthethwa.
Ntandoyenkosi Mthethwa says the reason she took up full-time employment after her time-lapsed as Miss South Africa is that she was finding herself and not many understood but she did.
“I had a lot of finding self after the pageant. To a point that moving from Johannesburg made sense for me. I had to rethink, reevaluate, realign. Find what my heart beats for again and to dream again. It’s been a beautiful journey that keeps unfolding itself,” says Ntandoyenkosi Mthethwa.
She says she does not regret her moves at all. We can’t wait to hear what she has been up to but in the meantime, she’s a certified life coach!

October marks a year since a resigned as private banker. Rewind to 2017 I worked for the regulatory board in the liquor and gambling industry as part of the Public relations team. I was blessed to have had the most beautiful working environments, supportive employers and co-workers. I have met amazing people that I still think about today. A question I was always asked was “Why from Miss South Africa would you go work?” The answer was simple… I’m finding myself. Not many understood but I did. I had a lot of finding of self after the pageant. To a point that moving from Johannesburg made sense for me. I had to rethink, re-evaluate, re-align…. find what my heart beats for again…to dream again. It’s been a beautiful journey that keeps unfolding its self …. Do I regret my moves…. not at ALL.. #Part1 #PersonalJourney #PersonalGrowth #Sprout #Grow #Adapt
She started modeling from the tender age of four, winning her first title as Miss Raindrop during a local festival held back in her hometown.
Ntandoyenkosi is a mother and a wife to singer Khaya Mthethwa. She holds a Bachelor of Education with honours in Curriculum Studies and she is the co-founder of Model Boot Camp.
She started to watch Miss SA when she was six years old, this is the time when Kerishnie Naiker was still Miss SA and she knew one day she’ll be Miss SA.
When the sexy Ntandoyenkosi turned 18, she started sending her applications for Miss SA and she was never chosen. In 2014 she made it through to the top 33 and when she didn’t get any further she was heartbroken but that drove her to keep on.
