Former beauty queen, TV presenter and actress Michelle Molatlou has died.
Molatlou succumbed to her battle with cervical cancer on Tuesday at the National Hospital in Bloemfontein.
Michelle Molatlou was an amazing all-rounder. From being crowned Miss Black South Africa to playing lead roles in SABC dramas, then magazines and advertising… Always reinventing herself. Always elegantly brilliant. Always beautiful. What a sad loss. ? #RIPMichelleMolatlou

Gutted to learn of the death of former Miss Black South Africa Michelle Molatlou.
She was a good friend and former colleague at Drum.
Last spoke on 23 October. I knew she was battling cervical cancer, but thought she’d pull through. #RIPMichelleMolatlou pic.twitter.com/lMChwVyN9R
