She returned to South Africa at the weekend from the US after she finished first ahead of the Puerto Rican and Mexican finalists.
On arrival, Tunzi went straight to her home town in the Eastern Cape province where received a warm welcome complete with pomp and traditional Xhosa and Zulu dances at a stadium.
