Thando Makoba, 19, from Makakatlela ward in Mochudi was crowned the fifth Miss Independence Kgatleng at Ntefo Conference Centre in Mochudi recently.

This year’s theme for the pageant, ‘the significance of a woman in the society’, is in line with the organisation’s objectives of building the girl-child.

The event started on a high note with the 12 finalists parading their unique designs.  The young women were equally beautiful and confident on stage.  It was difficult to predict the winner at that stage. After the fifth parade, the girls were shortlisted to the Top Nine, then Top Five and lastly Top Three where now the remaining queens were chosen.
