“You know that the drought we are experiencing in Cape Town is not just a South African phenomenon, it’s a global issue. However, I think the Cape Town (drought) has been exacerbated," said SA Tourism CEO Sisa Ntshona.
"The key message I want to send out to people considering going to Cape Town is go do business in Cape Town, still, travel. However be acutely aware of the drought conditions within Cape Town and abide by those as well,"
Great watching your interview this evening @sisantshona! Despite the water issue, being a global issue, encouraging tourism to continue in Cape Town is definitely a solution CapeTownisopenforbusiness pic.twitter.com/HUd196fAnB— Synergy Business Eve (@Synergy_BE) January 24, 2018
