Reigning Mr & Miss Little Soweto 2019

Thuto Ke Matla Day-care stole the show when it collected the most sought-after titles at this year’s Mr & Miss Little Soweto. Lerato Matlhoko (6) was crowned the queen and her principal Mpho Malope, and teacher Nhlanhla Simka, were voted the Best Principal and Best Teacher respectively.  The event was hosted at Soweto Theatre.

Kgopotso Ntengo (6) from Katlego Lesedi Day-Care was crowned Mr Little Soweto 2019.

But according to the organiser of the show, Oscar Mabusa, everybody is a winner here. He says their idea is to expose the kids to the world. “There are children who can’t afford fees and some don’t have shoes; this initiative makes it possible for us to supply them with such needs,” Oscar says.

The winning children will have their learning fees paid for the year. Others took home goodies and will be spoiled and entertained by the sponsors. The winning principal will have her crèche renovated. The sponsors included E-tv, Rezmad Build, Print Impact and Opti Eyewear.
