Tourist Project Gathering Steam in KwaZulu-Natal

A 20 billion Rand (~$4.25 billion US) theme development is being built in KwaZulu-Natal, but there are concerns about the future of the plan and the ambiguity of the agreement.

A spectacular model of the theme park, to be built on 16 500ha of land north of the Tugela River, was unveiled in Dubai in October.

However, Macambini residents have expressed concern that the development could force people to move off their ancestral land.

The issue was further muddied when another Dubai firm, Sports Cities International, said it had been given the right to develop the area.
