Every year in June, The Miss SA office announces that entries are open for both Miss SA and Miss SA Teen. This year though there were a lot of complications. Everything was delayed and no information was given to the public.
Sun International, the license holder of the Miss South Africa and Miss SA Teen pageants have not released an official statement but it seems like the Miss SA Teen pageant is not happening this year. When you try to call the Miss SA office they tell you to check their website for updates, it’sSEPTEMBER now and entries are still not open.
On the site there are no updates, just a picture of reigning Miss SA Teen Celeste Khumalo[ 18 year old who was crowned Miss South Africa Teen on Saturday 10 December at the Sun City Superbowl ] and the following sentence “Please note that entries for the Miss SA Teen 2012 pageant are not yet open. Keep checking this page for future updates.”
