By Ann McDonnell, MPL, DA KZN Spokesperson on EDTEA:
THE DA is delighted by the news that Dr David Mabundla has signed a contract for a further three years as head of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife.
We welcome the fact that provincial Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs, MEC Mike Mabuyakhulu, has heeded our call to retain Dr Mabundla.
His hand on the tiller has had a stabilising effect on this critical entity and we wish him well as he enters this next phase.
Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife is doing some amazing work – much of it is highly scientific in nature and therefore not widely known. The work is invaluable during this time of massive climate change.
This organisation has the potential to be a global leader in the fight to safeguard our natural heritage. All it needs is the right leadership.
The DA wishes Dr Mabundla well as he takes on this important challenge.
