Notice: Regarding Concessions/Conditional Registration for Tourist Guides
On instruction from the National Department of Tourism (NDT) the National Registrar of Tourist Guide I hereby inform you that conditional registration is no longer valid with immediate effect.
The concession letter dated 16 April 2004 authorized by the National Registrar at the time will no longer enable any individual to register as guide without the relevant accreditation certificate from CATHSSETA.
A well attended meeting in Parys on Friday 13 September saw our Association formally established, with the acceptance of the Constitution and its signing by founding members. Thanks were expressed to the ad hoc steering committee – especially Jan Fourie, Christo Meyer and Julius Moloi – for their work in bringing interest groups together and writing the Constitution.
We don't all agree with the same politics but this was a great man that did so much for South Africa. My Isreali group and I witnessed this moving tribute to Mandela on Saturday. Getting into Vilikazi str afterwards was not an option. I was also "ambushed" and caught unaware by Radio 702 and a French TV crew who interviewed me on camera! I hope I made South Africa proud..
