Just to clarify, we are taking about 5 possible
sites for the Malelane Hotel only. Not about the
other sites for the other 5+hotels.

Interesting from Beeld today:

Intussen het prof. Melville Saayman, ’n kundige op die gebied van parkbestuur op die Noordwes-Universiteit se Potchefstroom-kampus, gesê die sleutel tot die voorkoming van renosterstropery in die Krugerwildtuin is om verhoudings met die omliggende gemeenskappe te vestig.

“Hulle weet wie die stropers is,” het Saayman, wat onlangs ’n sosiale-impakstudie by die wildtuin gelei het, gesê.

Hy meen omliggende gemeenskappe sal stropers meer geredelik uitwys as hulle verstaan hoe stropery hul lewe negatief raak. “Dit moet aan hulle gekommunikeer word.”

’n Meningspeiling onder mense in Bosbokrand, Acornhoek, Hazyview, Hoedspruit, Komatipoort, Malalane, Marlothpark, Nelspruit en Phalaborwa was deel van Saayman se studie.

Dit het gewys inwoners het ’n oorwegend positiewe gevoel teenoor die wildtuin en die uitwerking daarvan op hul lewe.

“Die voortbestaan en groei van die wildtuin is vir hulle van onskatbare waarde.



In essence, the same survey from Potch university, not surprisingly, the value neighboring communities realise regarding Kruger is manifest and unconditional! \O

Translated:

A good way of nabbing poachers is to use the communities, as they know who the poachers are. They also realise Kruger is of "unimaginable value" to the area, and there is a majority positive view from said communities, and an understanding of how Kruger contributes!. (Which rather disputes SanParks' view that the communities have been denied benefits from Kruger... O**)

This is at last a proper survey, and not political thumbsuck, and seems to make a lot of sense! X#X

Not so much political thumb suck RP, more like intentional deception to achieve their goals which will ultimately line their pockets
Man was placed in charge and given the duty of caring for all creation, are we doing it?

With all due respect to those doing the impact studies!!!
They need their time to cipher all relevant data.

Takes time all that and makes me very nervous about
other weeling/dealing and decisions!!!! Now is not the
time to just sit back and wait!!

No RP, like I said, all takes time and those "minutes",
are part and parcel in the conclusion of the next impact
assessment!! Until then who knows?? May be to late!!

Any other decision making would be outside their scope
that is to say the organisation doing the assessment.
They cannot be seen as the "bridge" of
communication, that is AW versus SANparks.

Ja, the next actual relevant step is the release of the EIA in November, after which there will still be room for public comment until January...if SanParks plays by the rules!

The minutes of the presentation of the scoping report should be available soon...contact hem, H.! \O
