Elephant Coast Domestic tourism and beach access

ARBU  seeks public mandate

please sign our petition here

The Association of Recreational Beach Users is preparing to take the economic losses within the Elephant Coast tourism industry caused by the 4×4 ban to the Mtubatuba Local municipality and request that this issue be addressed by the minister of finance.

Our discussions with the minister of tourism and the minister of Environmental Affairs have failed due to lack of cooperative governance following the IWPA ( iSimangaliso Wetland Park Authority) interference, and the fact that the IWPA under the leadership of Andrew Zaloumis bullied the Mtubatuba Municipality and other parties, ensuring that discussions were never really open. This left the door open for the IWPA to do as they please, and avoid true public participstion process meetings to take place.

We have started the process by writing an open letter to the Mtubatuba Municipality requesting that this matter of lost income within the domestic tourism market be addressed through the MANDATED INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT PLAN PLATFORM Read our open letter here
