A mayoral welcome for holidaymakers heading to Destination…Summer!

On Thursday, 14 December – the official start of the festive season – Ray Nkonyeni Municipality’s (RNM) Acting Mayor Cllr Sibusiso Shange welcomed holidaymakers heading to the KZN South Coast at the annual Mayoral Roadblock. Supported by representatives from South Coast Tourism & Investment Enterprise (SCTIE), this was a warm welcome for visitors coming to enjoy the Blue Flag beaches, world-class dive sites, and outdoor adventures in the Paradise of the Zulu Kingdom. With all beaches on the KZN South Coast open for bathing, the region is anticipating another bumper festive season. Acting Mayor Shange, who was also joined by local law enforcement, greeted excited tourists by handing out information packs containing safety tips and the popular Southern Explorer route guide – now celebrating its 25th anniversary.
