Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS - Dave Sa­vides

OF­FI­CIAL ac­cred­i­ta­tion badges were handed to 10 newly ap­pointed tourist guides at a func­tion held at the Richards Bay Civic Cen­tre last Tues­day.

Their train­ing came from a part­ner­ship between the Na­tional De­part­ment of Tourism and the City of uMh­lathuze Com­mu­nity Tourism Or­gan­i­sa­tion.

The new ap­pointees were wel­comed and con­grat­u­lated by City Deputy Man­ager: Busi­ness Sup­port, Mar­kets and Tourism, Si­bon­isile Mad­uma.

The grad­u­ates were en­cour­aged to be­come am­bas­sadors for the re­gion, with the re­spon­si­bil­ity of ‘sell­ing’ the tourism as­sets of the area.

‘Put what you have learnt into prac­tice as you ef­fec­tively run your own SMME busi­ness through your ac­cred­i­ta­tion’ was the mes­sage they were given.

The suc­cess­ful trainees were Ayen­ziwe Hlong­wane, Nhlonipho Mdlet­she, Non­tando Zulu, Neliswa Khany­ile, Siph­e­sihle Zikhali, Londiwe Khany­ile, Futhi Khu­malo, Simo Gumede, Non­dalo Sit­hole, Mbali Nx­ele.
