What makes you think they will ever give up,..Lisbeth???,.. ,



as long as there will be ecological growth and self sustainability
it will draw attention, from a financial base!!,...

By example,... if the roots of kikuya grass were to be coupled
with financial gain and hype, this country would soon find self
with barren land,...

And the Australasian stock exchange on the map with a product,

for sale,.... ,...

Hey common,...this one has fallen flat, Lisbeth, I think that
investors do their homework before,...

before investing in a contentious issue,..

Some folks have been taken for a ride on this very contentious
issue, with little appreciation or at least a sign thereoff,...

The world out there knows, especially the would investor,..
their funding would be at risk, with little return,.

Hey Lisbeth, over the last few years this scenario down south has
created plenty room for scepticism, yet this very morning the leader
of the lot on his way too Brazil,... negotiating,...another hive,..


Sorry dear, as long as roots grow, 'corruption will be riding the throng',..
Heh,.. H.e

Don't know if Malelane hotel is corruption as much as graft? Somebody came to SANParks with the idea, not other way round, IMO.

Remember, the thing started 2009, or more probably 2008/earlier, depending on who authorised what!

before 94.....

Sanparks know that they are sitting on a gold mine,...

Then why not just decline the offer,...

Fact is, in those days with the exchange rate 1/.7 for a dollar
there was no emmediate need for scraping of the bottomless pit.

South Africa was rich in other resources yet,..........

At 10/ 1 dollar it has become a very interesting country for
exploitation, even the harvesting of rhino horn!!!

In those days, due to simple neglect and Africa being bountifull,
it was far easier to re- institute rhino back into their rightfull being.

We must see fact for what it's worth!!!!....

Those days rhino were rhino, extinct but subject to different conditions,..


Today they are plentifull, heavily threatened,......

Money talks, however it can talk in different directions,...

Those days one would be classed a concerned conservationist,..
these days classed a millionaire, simply for owning one,..

Nah,... this whole ideology of conservation stinks!!!!
Heh,.. H.e
