Its with a sense of deep satisfaction that I can report that the African National Congress has lost the local election at Nquthu to the Inkatha Freedom party. As the driving force behind the centre was a rather radical ANC member we can but hope that she will now move onto greener pastures as I am lead to believe that finances will be better used and channeled.
We can but hope.

I have received notification that the specific appeals made by Ian Knight & Paul Marais have been rejected in a recent judgement that now permits the building of the cultural centre.

Frank

In the second picture, are we looking toward the Notch with Conical Hill on the far right? And is the line of stakes on the near side of the road the edge of the protected battlefield area?

Hi Steve
Exactly. That's how close it is to the battlefield.
JY
As I mentioned to you the builders wont start because they haven't been paid. As an aside they have a front end loader on site that spends its time giving the local kids rides up and down the road.

When I spoke to the guys on site and asked them what they were doing about the graves they shrugged and knew nothing about them Knowing the history I gave them chapter and verse and warned them that when they du into the ground the 'TOKOLOSH' would be released. That tended to unsettle them a tad. In fact when I popped back around thirty minutes later there was nobody there, strange Shocked Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect Suspect

Sorry, for the benefit of the forum a TOKOLOSH is a very malevolent spirit that does massive damage whilst you sleep.

Still happens today Andy. Its a very real issue so maybe Ive unwittingly put a spoke in the development. Possibly I need to find a local Sangome that likes solid cash in his back pocket? Neutral

It's a true shame people nowadays have so little respect for battlefields and the fallen. I visited Chickamauga several weeks back on Easter Sunday... the field was littered with trash and people out playing frisbee, easter egg hunts, etc. No sense of reverence.

Just had a six hour meeting with members of the Royal House and their representatives.

To say that they are unhappy about the project would be an understatement.

There is a further meeting planned in London with a very senior member of the Royal House in attendance.

John a concern that should be addressed at least is that there is a digger/loader on site ready to start digging but nobody I spoke to has the slightest idea about the grave conservation area.
As usual half cocked start up big funds paid out in terms of 'up front payments' then a slow down of epic proportion with an unsightly mess left for the enjoyment of the ever increasing tourism industry. That industries increase can be measured by the Rorkes Drift Hotel adding on 12 additional rooms to handle the extra flow.
As it is the bridge at Durnfords Donga is still unfinished and is an unsightly mess after two years.

Hi Frank and others
I can tell you the digging has started , there are several places where it's commenced inside the blue ' security ' ( I use that word loosely ! ) perimeter , good news is it's already 2 months behind schedule ! . I knew where it was going to built but I was very surprised to see it in the flesh , there are two cairns on hits edge ! Suspect Sad Sad Sad
