Ahead of her float tour of the city, SA's own Miss Universe made an appearance in Parliament at the State of the Nation Address.

She was there at the invitation of President Cyril Ramaphosa, along with Springbok skipper Siya Kolisi.

On Friday, Tunzi -accompanied by Cape Town Mayor Dan Plato - took the time to chat with fans at the Grand Parade, who expressed their joy and pride at her achievement.
