The group of German tourists were on their way to the safari lodge owned by the Mdluli community when they were stopped by a group on Numbi Road on Monday afternoon.

A member of the group of four tourists was shot dead during the attack.

The murder of a foreign tourist in South Africa is detrimental to the country’s attempts to recover from the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The safari lodge, which opened its doors to the public shortly before the international travel ban to stop the spread of the pandemic, employs 200 members of the local community who make up 95% of the staff.

These men and women are also part of a skills development program.

“The murder of the tourist will undermine our program to get tourism and job creation back on track as we emerge from the pandemic,” Minister Creecy said.
