Dear Minister of Tourism - Please unlock leisure camping (and travel)

Leisure camping tourists/service providers and suppliers wholeheartedly support the measures our government has put in place to contain the spread of COVID19 in SA. The lockdown regulations already had a measurable negative impact on the sustainability of close to 1 000 smaller campsites. The economies of rural areas, smaller towns such as Bela Bela, and geographic areas that offer a substantial number of campsites such as the coastal areas of KwazuluNatal, the Eastern and Western Cape is under

The UN to intervene on the chaos in zimbabwe

Four months ago, the ANC in Gauteng dissolved the Tshwane Council in an unlawful coup to remove the DA from power. In doing so, the ANC removed democratically elected councillors from their positions and their communities. They were replaced by unlawful ad
