Diamond Fields Advertiser - - OPINION -

AL­LEGED ap­a­thy on the part of the North­ern Cape premier, and an anti-de­vel­op­ment stance by a tra­di­tion­al­ist com­mu­nity group who want to re­tain their an­ces­tral land, could see the Prov­ince los­ing out on a bil­lion-rand cap­i­tal in­vest­ment in the form of a Hol­ly­wood-type movie set, pos­si­bly to the detri­ment of the coun­try, as well as the small, im­pov­er­ished com­mu­nity of Pella. Pres­i­dent and CEO of Desert Star Stu­dios, Ru­dolf Mark­graaff, yes­ter­day spoke out on his dis­ap­point­ment re­gard­ing the way the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment has han­dled this sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment pro­posal.
