Group claims land
Author: Ingrid Ollermann
A land row is said to be at the heart of a dispute that is threatening the “big five” private Mkuze Falls game reserve near Pongola. A lion is said to have recently escaped and is “on the prowl” from the reserve due to a fence being cut. This is according to papers before Judge Gregory Kruger, who granted an urgent interim interdict yesterday stopping five members of a group calling themselves the “Concerned Group” from tampering with or damaging fences belonging to Mkuze Falls.
The interim interdict also orders the five individuals — the alleged leader Nqaba Ntshangase, Nkosinathi Mthinyane, Sebenzile Ntshangase, Simon Nkambule and Musa Duma — from inciting violence or harassing members of the Ntunzana Community Trust, which derives an income from Mkuze Falls. They have until February 5 to show why the interdict should not be confirmed.
