What baffles here is..page 34 which reads..
Date when the Agreement Expires
Operation commencement date dependent
Approximately
1 Jan 2042,...

Is this simply a typo or intended??

If intended, then we have managed breathing space, though
the crazy idea can still return at any time.
Maybe a typo, then it simply illustrates bad management for
it to appear under Dr. Mabundas signature. After all this is a
corporate document.
Heh,.. H.e

11.4%
Obviously a figure that has much to do with the hotels.
Since the hotel saga is broadly based on the black visitors that would
fulfill that market niche, I wonder what portion of this 11.4% would
satisfy this endeavour??

I feel that these new stats are rather questionable!! Another
marketing ploy to satisfy the figures that will determine the
existence off hotels in Kruger????

Why a sudden surge in black visitors to all the parks so to speak??

As said somewhere before, the silence worries me. It would not be unlike the current management to try to sneak something through under the wire.
The sale of National Park land at Chapmans comes to mind. :evil:
Man was placed in charge and given the duty of caring for all creation, are we doing it?

Got hold of EIA today, and I don't want to steal your thunder, H. :o0ps: You'll get the mail!

No news is good news...they are slowly finishing the scoping report, NO new EIA even in the pipeline officially, NO approval of rezoning yet by the Minister, NO sufficient funds yet from the Developer.

So unless SP is being very naughty, it is still at square one! 0()

God put me on earth to accomplish a certain amount of things. Right now I'm so far behind that I'll never die.
