Tragedy Strike Laid Back Town


St. Lucia Estuary is normally a holiday destination with romance and rejuvenation in mind. This morning the town was buzzing with emergency services as ambulances rushed in and a helicopter landed in the middle of the main road. Apparently I man off middle thirties and a girl of about fifteen has attempted a suicide.

At the time they where attended to by the ambulance services they where critical but still alive. We pray for these people and their families during this time.

Khula Village

Tensions are high in our neighboring outskirts. Counselor Zungu where shot in his home last night at 20h15.

Calls are made for revenge. Grass root feeling is that this murder is politically motivated. The said calls are made for revenge on two from the opposition members should be dead by the time the funeral is held.

People from as far as Durban and Gauteng are sweeping up the normal peace full community of Khula Village. Khula Village leaders are holding meetings to try and stabilize a volatile situation from exploding into a massacre.

As we have seen on T.V, it is almost un believable that responsible adults race to such a tratigy and exploiting the volatile situation.

Counselor Zungu was much loved by his community irrespective of their political standing and believes. He never left a stone unturned to attend to his community’s needs and grievances.

To achieve this he had to work closely with various political figures including the traditional leaders of the area and the various regional municipalities.
Khula, although neighbors to The Isimagaliso Wetlands Park, had a great set back economically te 1999 early 2000 when Minister Vali Moosa closed beach vehicle access to the beaches of St. Lucia and The Wetlands area.
Khula where rapidly growing their home based economy that flourished on the tourist from Gauteng and Mapumalanga that came to visit our beaches and relax in the sun. The Tembe tribe from Sodwana had Sodwana excluded from this ban and today this is a growth point in a normal stagnant and very poor region.
