National War of words over hunting Kruger game

Bantu Holomisa, the president of the United Democratic Movement, has fired arrows laced with poisonous words at the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. He has accused the reserve of killing the Kruger National Park's wildlife. But the TPNR's management is convinced of the reserve's innocence and is fighting back, even threatening legal action.

Minister concerned about hunting in Timbavati

Hunting in private game reserves that border South Africa's national parks is of "specific concern" to Minister of Environmental Affairs and Tourism Marthinus van Schalkwyk, he said in a statement on Wednesday. The issue was raised two weeks ago by Bantu Holomisa, leader of the United Democratic Movement.
