Published on : Friday, October 11, 2019

On September 27th, Kempton Park Tembisa Tourism Association (KTTA) celebrated World Tourism Day at Gatalena, in Tembisa Emoyeni section.

 

Greetings of the tourism ambassadors, a car show, music, cultural exchanges, a showcase of art and craft, food and cultural fashion featured in the event. The Ndebele chieftaincy graced the audience with their presence.

 

Sibusiso Nhlabathi, the organizer, said that they hosted the event to instruct the community about the importance of and opportunities that can be found in tourism.
“People here do not know much about tourism. We are trying to change that, more especially in the townships of the Ekurhuleni region,” said Nhlabathi.

 

Nhlabathi also said that one tourist can feed about five people, right from tour guides to accommodation and transportation.

 

To quote Nhlabathi, “We need to raise a strong awareness about tourism in our neighbourhoods and schools and gather as many business people to educate them about tourism. As we celebrate World Tourism Day, I say let’s not destroy the monuments we have around us by any means because tomorrow they might be our bread and butter.”

 

Princess Maria Masilela, serving under Chief Ndzundza Macingwane II, a traditional council, said, “The royal house exists in the township. We attract tourists to our city and we grow tourism here.”

 

She added that they work hand in hand with the municipality and councillors for identifying problems within the community and find solutions.
