Limpopo residents lambasted the exercise, saying it is a waste of taxpayers' money.

Our new Miss South Africa, Shudufhadzo Musiḓa has inadvertently found herself at the centre of a controversy after the Limpopo government tweeted posters advertising her homecoming scheduled for Thursday.

Tweeps from Limpopo immediately questioned the local government’s decision to spend money on a homecoming as opposed to the myriad of problems they, as citizens of the province, consider to be more pressing.

“Yourll have no shame, busy chowing taxpayers money for your comrades to eat, while vulnerable ppl are starving without food and province is without water, Sis! #VoetsekANC,” tweeted user @NaiduDamien.

He was not alone as others had some of their own thoughts on the matter.

It wasn’t all negative, however, as many found it endearing that Miss SA took time out of her busy schedule to visit her home province.

Limpopo residents were so excited to see their queen that they almost mobbed the drop-top Mercedes-Benz that she was travelling in.

On Friday, Musiḓa will participate in yet another parade that will see her make her way through the Thohoyandou CBD, Mphephu Drive, the University of Venda and the Vhembe TVET College.
