Crime threatens EC Tourism

The high rate of crime against tourists in the Eastern Cape caused concern for the Eastern Cape Parks & Tourism Agency (ECPTA), which has put a call for the community to work together to curb these unfortunate incidents of criminality on tourists.

“Tourism is an important driver of positive economic growth, development, and supports many community upliftment programmes. Threats to safety of tourists imposes serious damage to the friendly and welcoming image of the province and it would a tragedy if visitors, be they domestic or international, would regard the entire province to be ‘unsafe’,” said Vuyani Dayimani, CEO of the Agency.
