Seems like a normal situation for them over the last few years.
They must be getting used to it.

I'm with Flutts - any delay is good and we can keep up hope! 0:

The best news is that the financiers have backed out. \O I wonder if it is because of the delays or because of the controversy

Most probably the controversy but the delay is a nice way out.

The worst case scenario is that SanParks have decided to make new plans to fast-track the hotels...anything is possible in the current political turmoil in this country.

More probably, they have forgotten about it for the time being or are keeping a low profile, and will get back to it after a certain conference. O**

A ministerial quote from 12 June:

Molewa said if everything goes according to plan, construction on this hotel would begin in January next year.

It is 14 months later than the original date in October 2011, after the environmental impact study was completed.

She pointed out that 70% of the people around the park were unemployed and that with the proposed new developments between 600 and 700 jobs will be created.

About the possible negative impact that hotel developments may pose for the Park's ecosystems and biodiversity Molewa said there is no empirical, scientific evidence for it.

Maybe not, but how about using a bit of common logic or are they incapable of such a thought process -O-

Is the environmental impact study the same as the EIA?
